The Ruthin star was competing as part of duo Jake and Joe in Sweden.

The pair finished third from the bottom in what was another disappointing year for the UK entry.

This meant the public votes were saved to last and this made for an exciting fight between Ukraine and Australia for the top spot.

Ukraine just tipped over the edge after being awarded 534 points.

It wasn't all a loss for Jake and Joe after being awarded 12 points by Malta.

It was the first time the UK had been given full points in the last five years.
