Eurovision fans convinced they’ve spotted a secret presenter feud as Ted Lasso star ‘throws shade’ at Amanda Holden | The Sun

EUROVISION fans have been left convinced that they have spotted a secret feud between the show's presenters.

Last night, Tad Lasso star Hannah Waddingham was seen hosting the semi-final alongside Alesha Dixon and Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina.

Hannah, 48, who is best known for playing Rebecca Welton in the comedy series, introduced the programme last night.

The actress, who was joined by singers Alesha, 44, and Julia, 32, on stage for the first live show ahead of this weekend's final.

The Benidorm star explained the voting rules for the semi-final to the watching crowd in French, before it was explained in English.

And she appeared to make a cheeky dig at last year's announcer Amanda Holden after admitting to a major language barrier.

During her Eurovision cameo in 2021, Amanda, 52, greeted fans in French and Dutch before admitting she didn't know which was which.

"Bon soir. Goedenavond. That is 'good evening' in French and Dutch although I've got absolutely no idea which is which," she said.

Appearing to nod towards the awkward incident, Hannah joked about the incident after reading in French: "You see, Europe? Some of us Brits do bother to learn another language."

Fans at home couldn't help but notice the dig and took to Twitter.
