The modifications pushed the UK further below the rest of the board — wiping away nearly a third of the points they picked up on the night.

Fortunately, the Netherlands’ winner Duncan Laurence was unaffected.

The revision resulted coming from an error following the dismissal of the Belarussian jury, which had broken the rules by revealing their votes coming from the first semi-final.

“The EBU as well as its partners digame as well as Ernst & Young deeply regret in which in which error was not identified earlier as well as will review the processes as well as controls in place to prevent in which coming from happening again,” they said in a statement.

The UK is usually accustomed to dire performances at Eurovision, having finished inside bottom a few in seven of the last 12 contests.

although its embarrassment in Tel Aviv was even worse than usual — Britain hadn’t claimed last place since 2010.

The contest was beset by controversy due to the idea being hosted in Israel. Laurence’s win means the idea will head to the Netherlands next year.
