    The once a year Guilty Pleasure thread - IT'S EUROVISION NIGHT!!

    The once a year Guilty Pleasure thread - IT'S EUROVISION NIGHT!! 12th May 18 at 3:33 PM
    I'm surprised that there isn't a Eurovision Song Contest thread popped up already on here, so I thought I'd start one.
    I've already stocked up on 'pop' and crisps, etc.
    Norton will be on mute, and Ken Bruce will be talking through my headphones.
    Anyway, I don't care who wins (think Israel has a good shout though), 'cos we don't have a snowball's of winning. But it will be interesting to see who in Europe still hasn't forgiven us for voting out, and who still hates us for just about everything else.
    See you all in a couple of hours

    A spot of linedancing please chaps.

    The non gay men in the audience love it

    Ken Bruce has been great tonight. Far better than Norton.
