You may be thinking 'What could possibly be worse than coming last out of a field of 26?'

It's a tough one to figure out - but that's precisely what happened to the UK at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

As you may have heard, the UK's entry was 'Bigger Than Us', sung by Michael Rice, which flopped in with just 16 points in last place once all the jury and televoting scores were collated.

However, it has now been revealed that Rice actually only scored 11 points, due to an error in calculation after the Belarusian jury were dismissed for revealing their semi-final scores. The scores of other countries were also affected, although it did not alter the fact that the Netherlands won by a large margin. In fact, Duncan Laurence received an additional six points for his song 'Arcade'.

The Eurovision Broadcast Union released a statement blaming 'human error' for the mistake. "This had no impact on the calculation of points derived from televoting across the 41 participating countries and the overall winner and Top 4 songs of the Contest remain unchanged," it read.

Rice, meanwhile, has not yet commented.
