Eurovision 2022: When is the grand final and what time does it start?

The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is just around the corner and many people are looking forward to tuning in to the grand final. It will follow after a week of semi-finals which have been airing live on BBC Three with Scott Mills and Rylan Clark.

The 2022 grand final will take place in Turin in Italy after the country came top last year with Maneskin's Zitti E Buoni. As is tradition, Eurovision always takes place in the home country of last year's winner.

This year the UK will be represented by Tik Tok star Sam Ryder with his song Space Man. You can read more about Sam and his entry here.
