Isolation Song Contest: Watch all the entries

Comedians create their own entries

With this year's Eurovision Song Contest cancelled, musical comedian Tom Taylor decided to stage his own version, recruiting 14 comedy and cabaret chums to represent various European nations - and Australia.

After being randomly assigned a country, each act had just one week to compose an original Eurovision-style entry and music video for that nation.

And even more stars signed up to introduce the various entries in his Isolation Song Contest, which has so far raised almost £30,000 for charity.

Here we present all the contributions. To vote for your winner, visit, donate and give the relevant hashtag for the country you're voting for from the below table. The winner will be revealed in a results show on May 22.

Today's comedy-on demand picks


Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
