He told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning: “I’m so happy and so grateful for the opportunity.

He then went on to discuss his Eurovision performance and the “fulfilled” feeling he has been left with.
Sam added: “I’ve been singing a long time and most of that time has been to empty rooms but it never affected the joy that singing the music brought me, I was already fulfilled.
“Eurovision is about solidarity and shining a light into darkness, countless times when we have been in turmoil, music is the first thing we turn to.”
Brian May shared his happiness in being involved in such an amazing day backstage to the PA agency.
He said: “We were here 20 years ago for the Golden Jubilee and it’s great to be asked back.
“And we like to bring something special every time, so we’ll see if we can pull off something epic tonight.”
