Ukraine's Eurovision commentator has been broadcasting live from a bomb shelter - as the war torn nation's entry is the bookmakers' favourite to win the contest.

Timur Miroshnychenko, the Ukrainian Graham Norton, has been broadcasting from a dank Kyiv bomb shelter to prevent Russian artillery from interrupting his broadcast during tonight's final in Turin, Italy.

The gloomy shelter features a single light bulb, peeled plaster and exposed brick alongside a mass of unorganised wires. Mr Miroshnychenko, 36, told the Telegraph: "We have to be underground because… you never know. "You don't have a schedule of air raid alerts when Russia decides to launch their missiles...

we have to be underground not to interrupt the broadcasts." Timur Miroshnychenko co-hosted the song contest final in 2017 in Kyiv after Ukraine's victory in the 2016 competition.
