It wasn’t the only time Graham took a swipe at one of the performances tonight as he was also heard joking about Slovenia’s act Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl.
Before their performance, he asked viewers: “Romantic or creepy, you decide,” before later announcing: “I’ve decided, it’s creepy,” as the pair wrapped up their routine.
