Welsh star Bonnie Tyler flew the flag for the UK tonight with a belting rendition of Believe in Me at the Eurovision Song Contest. Speaking immediately after the performance, Tyler said:

"What an incredible atmosphere. I really enjoyed that performance, I got out there and gave it some welly.

"When all those lights came on it felt like magic, all twinkling lights everywhere. I really hope Europe enjoyed it."

She has one point so far.
