Hertfordshire's Alex Larke took to the stage in Vienna last night as one half of the UK's entry in the 60th Eurovision Song contest.

Alex from Welwyn Garden City performed alongside Bianca Nicholas as part of Electro Velvet but sadly their track 'Still in Love With You" didn't go down well with the judges, only picking up five points. The duo finished 24th out of 27.

Sweden were crowned the eventual winners fighting off strong competition from Russia and Italy.
