Montenegro and North Macedonia will not compete in next year’s Eurovision Song Contest because of how much it will cost them to enter.

Broadcasters pay a fee to take part in the competition but the amount differs depending on the size of the country.

Russia, a large financial contributor, was expelled from this year’s competition after it invaded Ukraine.

The total cost for all broadcasters involved to enter normally adds up to around £5m, but exactly how much each participant pays isn’t made public.
