It's likely that Eurovision viewers will have seen the stage invader on TV before

He has previous with this kind of thing.

Another year, another Eurovision, another controversy. To be fair, though, at least SuRie had something of an excuse, as her song was interrupted by a protestor.

After storming the stage and grabbing the mic, the man appeared to shout: "For the Nazis of the UK media we demand freedom". He was quickly ushered offstage by security and SuRie managed to complete her performance.

It appears seems that the stage invader has previous with this kind of thing, having stormed the stage last year during the final of ‘The Voice’ final last year. He also tried the same stunt at the National Television Awards. He goes by the name 'Dr ACactivism’ online.

He was taken into police custody following the disruption and the European Broadcasting Union issued a statement following the incident.

"The EBU regrets a stage invasion took place during the UK performance. The person responsible is currently in police custody," it read.

"The UK singer SuRie and her team were offered the option to sing again but decided not to because they were extremely proud of her performance and have decided that there is absolutely no reason to perform the song again."

At the NTA's Dermot O'Leary was forced to confront him and see him off stage. As the Australian commentator Joel Creasey said, he's an "absolute cockhead."
