#BIRTHDAY: Jake Shakeshaft from the UK is 25 today
Are there certain countries you wish could do better. Yes, we know anyone can win our favourite TV show, but some places seem to lack a bit of luck.
That luck could be circumstance, or just due to the effort put in by a broadcaster. I’ll leave it to you to decide which it was for today’s birthday boy Jake Shakeshaft. He palled up with his mate Joe Woolford and had high hopes. The UK has not had it easy in the 21st Century, and Europe appeared to overlook them again. J&J came 24th, still finishing ahead of one of the other Big Five group. They did get a 12 from the jury of Bosnia AND Herzegovina. That’s some consolation, knowing you’re popular in Sarajevo, surely?
