The One Show star Alex Jones cheekily warned British Eurovision contestant Sam Ryder that a boozy night out might be in store for him if presenter Rylan Clark has anything to do with it. Sam, Rylan and co-presenter Scott Mills joined Alex and her co-star Ronan Keating remotely as Alex jokingly begged the SPACE MAN singer to hold off on his big night out until after the finals on Saturday night.
Alex and Ronan were joined remotely on The One Show by the UK’s Eurovision crew live from Turin.
Sam, who hopes to turn Britain’s Eurovision reputation around with his hit song SPACE MAN, was flanked by grinning co-presenters Rylan and Scott.
After checking in to see what the competition was looking like, Alex couldn’t resist making a cheeky remark about Rylan’s legendary tradition of taking the UK’s entry on a night out before the grand final.
Alex said: “I know, Rylan, that you’ve been in trouble in the past because you’ve got this tradition of taking out the UK entry the night before the competition for a big night out and then it all goes a bit pear (shaped).”
Turning to TikTok sensation Sam, she continued: “Now Sam, you need to be aware, he’s into tequila.”
While Alex continued with an air of mock sincerity, the three men fell about laughing as they heard what she was saying through their earpieces.
Rylan, however, was keen to clarify that he was assuredly not sabotaging the competition with any boozy nights out this year.
“Listen, Sam has been extremely good this week, he’s been on vocal rest…” he insisted.
“I’ve been eating my salads!” Sam chimed in, before Rylan quipped: “Alright calm yourself!”
Scott added: “To be fair it is tradition that Rylan does take the acts out, but it hasn’t happened this year.
As Rylan mysteriously interjected with a “not yet”, Scott continued: “It might happen on Saturday.”
“It will happen on Saturday,” Rylan reassured Sam.

At this point, Alex came back in, warning: “Saturday’s fine – after!”
Later on in the interview, Rylan admitted that the UK team had also had a “couple of drinks” with this year’s Ireland entry, Brooke Scullion.
Rylan has teamed up with BBC Radio 1’s Scott to oversee Eurovision coverage for the UK this year.
The competition is being held in Turin thanks to Italy’s big win last year.
Rock band Måneskin won with their song Zitti E Buoni and have gone on to enjoy commercial success.
The Grand Final will be held on Saturday night with 25 countries competing in the hopes of winning the title for their countries.
Graham Norton will reprise his role as commentator for the event, while Ryan and Scott voiced the semi-finals.
The UK has a reputation for placing at the bottom of the leaderboard year after year, but Sam might be about to change all of that with a lot of positive buzz behind him.
