Mel Giedroyc appears as ‘butter-churning Polish milkmaid’ in Eurovision skit
TV presenter Mel Giedroyc has pretended to churn butter dressed in a milkmaid’s outfit during a break between performances on the Eurovision Song Contest.

Th 54-year-old, who is commentating on the show with TV presenter Graham Norton, appeared to be churning butter in a suggestive manner after Belgium’s singer-songwriter Gustaph had performed.
