Eurovision host city poll: Which city won the British vote?



Last Friday, seven cities were shortlisted to host Eurovision 2023 on behalf of Ukraine.


We ran a preferential poll that saw fans rank their top five choices in order.


In total, 256 people took part and after already revealing the choice of Aussie fans, today we are focusing on the results of the 105 British fans who voted in the poll.


Below are the results over several rounds where one city will be knocked out and their preferences redistributed.


For example if you voted for Glasgow and they were knocked out first round, your vote would then go to your second choice.


Got it? Good! Let's go!
