The most recent episode of the BBC opened with Callum and Frankie (played by Tony Clay and Rose Ayling-Ellis) having a conversation about his relationship in the kitchen.
To a clearly upset Callum, Frankie was heard joking: “This is about the Eurovision isn’t it? But Ukraine deserved that win and there’s always next year.”
He responded: “I never used to watch it, and then Ben got me into it and… nul points every year, the one year we don’t watch it together we get second.”
While EastEnders is usually filmed months in advance, the scene referencing the Eurovision result was filmed at the eleventh hour to reference the UK’s success in Turin over the weekend.
It’s since been revealed that it could even be a contender for the number one spot, which would make Space Man the first Eurovision track to do so since Gina G’s Ooh Aah… Just A Little Bit.
