Poland wins Eurovision Dance Contest
Poland triumphed in the Eurovision Dance Contest last night, beating off competition from 13 rival countries.

Marcin Mroczek and Edyta Herbus topped the leaderboard with a grand total of 154 points, which were based on viewer votes and scores given by an independent judging panel.

Russia, represented by dancing duo Alexander Litvinenko and Tatiana Navka, came second with 121 points, followed by the Ukraine's Serhij Kostetskiy and Liliya Podkopaeva with 119 points in third place.

The UK's representatives Louisa Lytton and Vincent Simone finished in ninth position with 47 points. They had previously been paired together on series four of Strictly Come Dancing.

The contest was held at Glasgow's Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and was hosted by Graham Norton and Claudia Winkleman. Strictly stars Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood were among the judges who provided commentary on each routine, but the result was eventually determined by a separate panel.

Last year's competition was won by Finland, while the UK's Brendan Cole and Camilla Dallerup finished second from last.
