Rylan Clark has angered Eurovision bosses by taking the UK act out for a wild night.

The 33-year-old presenter will co-host the BBC's coverage of this year's semi-final of the song contest but admitted he has gotten in trouble before for encouraging the UK's acts to party before the contest.

Speaking about this year's UK’s hopeful Sam Ryder, Rylan told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "It is tradition that I always take the British act out, normally on the Wednesday or the Thursday, and then the head of delegation always has a go at me because I take them out.

"But I will make sure Sam is all right by Saturday night.”

Last year's UK entrant James Newman scored zero points but Rylan has high hopes for Sam.

He said: "I know full well we will be on the left-hand side of the leaderboard this year.

“How high up, I don’t know, but I’ve every faith in Sam.”

Rylan will be co-hosting with Scott Mills and he said: "Me and Scott are going to be doing the semis, which I cannot wait for. Who doesn’t love a semi?

“We will make it so good because we’ve not been there in person in two years. We’ve got a lot of making up to do since Tel Aviv (in 2019).

"I cannot wait to have a fantastic time and see what all of the countries have to offer.”
