Watch: All the Isolation Song Contest songs

Catch up on all the songs from last weekend's surprise lockdown treat
With this year's Eurovision Song Contest sadly cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, comic Tom Taylor took matters into his own hands, asking 14 famous friends (including Tim Vine, Mel Giedroyc, Nick Helm, Flo & Joan and The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon) to recreate the magic of Eurovision from the safety of their homes. Each was randomly assigned a country, and given one week to compose and record a song – plus an accompanying music video – for their adopted nation. The results were far better than they had any right to be.
It may be a whole load of fun, but there's also a good cause behind the silliness. Audiences can vote for their favourite songs by making a donation at IsolationSongContest.com, with all proceeds going to three charities; The Trussell Trust, Crisis and Refuge.
Voting closes on Friday 22 May and the winner will be announced in a results show on Saturday 23 May. Catch up on all the videos below and vote for your favourite now.
