Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Eurovision viewers were left in hysterics during Saturday's Grand Final, as 'Carol Vorderman' made an appearance.

The Countdown number expert got name-dropped as the second performer of the night, Anxhela Peristeri for Albania, took to the stage with her track Karma.

She looked stunning in a glittering silver dress, with her brunette tresses falling in gentle waves past her shoulders – and she did look as stunning as Carol!

And it was down to wry UK commentator Graham Norton to say: "Is there nothing Carol Vorderman can't do?

"No, it's not – this is Anxhela Peristeri for Albania!" Graham giggled as he corrected himself.

But viewers couldn't help but find the comment hilarious, swarming to social media in droves to say: "'Is there nothing Carol Vorderman can't do!!' DEAD!"

"Lol @Grahnort Carol Vorderman comment!" another penned.

While someone else said: "Graham Norton is already on fire with the p*sstaking!"

A fourth was clearly giggling as they posted: "If Carol Vorderman and JLo had a baby girl!"

"TBF I can see Carol wearing this outfit too! #Eurovision," someone else quickly said.

At the start of Saturday's Grand Final, Graham had admitted he was "emotional" at his return to the Eurovision Song Contest following its cancellation last year due to pandemic restrictions.

Opening the show, the presenter said: "Finally we are here. It's a really emotional night.

"If I start blubbering at any time, apologies, because I am all over the place.

"There is so much joy and celebration here that this contest is back on and we're all here together tonight."

UK act James Newman is set to perform ninth in the contest – and hopes he will be able to secure a spot on the left-hand side of the score board.

He even thinks he might be able to scoop a win for the UK for the first time since 1997, when Katrina and the Waves rose to victory.

But bookies aren't convinced – and have placed Italy and Malta among favourites for the 2021 crown.

James isn't fazed, though, and insisted that if he does emerge victorious, he'd love to host the 2022 contest in Leeds, near his hometown of Settle.

When quizzed about his ideal location to host Eurovision, James said: "Outside of the UK, I think I would love to go to maybe Copenhagen.

"Because I go there all the time to write songs, and the food’s amazing, the people are amazing. It’s an amazing city, so Copenhagen I would say.

"And in the UK, I would pick Leeds because I’m from Yorkshire and Leeds is in Yorkshire. And I think the Eurovision Song Contest would be amazing in Yorkshire."
