They’ve covered previous editions of Eurovision, honing in on Conchita Wurst in Copenhagen and Sergey Lazarev in Stockholm.

And on Friday, during the ninth series of Channel 4’s Gogglebox, the couples, friends and families turned to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv.

“I’ve heard all of the songs”, Christopher from Brighton said, noting that he had watched both semi-finals. We know that goes for all y’all as well.

The main focus was Romania’s Ilinca and Alex Florea with “Yodel It”.

Ilinca’s yodelling talent got everyone talking.

The coverage started with the UK’s Eurovision grand final commentator Graham Norton introducing the act to UK viewers.

“It’s very fun, it’s very silly, but a real crowd-pleaser of a floor-filler,” he said. “It’s very different and might do very well. It’s called ‘Yodel It’. Enjoy!”

Alex recently picked up unwanted attention in the euro-sphere. And the hard times continued during tonight’s episode, which saw the cast mates spearing his infamous (and very sloppy) kiss.

“That was too rough,” says Mary.

“That was a bit of an aggressive kiss,” says the Siddiqui family from Derby. “Move over there, completely mis-judged the tone.”

“There’s nothing metrosexual about Romanian men. They know what they want and they go out and get it,” says Giles.

I think the two Romanians are very close, I mean a couple, because in the semifinal, when they found out they are qualified in the final, he put his nose between her br ea sts. They are definitely a romantic couple. I also saw a picture with their hotel room and it was a single bed with two pillows.

A sadly typical approach from the UK, where the winner is completely ignored, even on Gogglebox, with all the focus on one of the more novelty style entries, to fit the British ideal of what Eurovision is.

Can you explain it? I don’t really understand it. I mean, we have shows here that are just watching other people eat food and commenting (I don’t understand them either!). This is just people watching TV right?

The people who watch these shows are just said with their own lives, they have to live vicariously through other boring people.

A bit of casual racism from Giles, perhaps? It certainly stinks of regression, anyhow.
