Kirstie Allsopp responded to Graham Norton after the Eurovision host called Jonida Maliqi the "Albanian Kirstie Allsopp".

Eurovision host Graham Norton is known for his sassy comments and witty one-liners, and Kirstie Allsopp is equally known for voicing her opinion.

So when Norton likened the Location, Location, Location host to Albania's entry, she naturally had something to say about it.

Albania's entry, Jonida Maliqi, was second to perform at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

She performed the original song, 'Ktheju tokës', which translates to 'Return to the Land' in English.

Just before Jonida took to the stage, Norton referred to her as the "Albanian Kirstie Allsopp".

For the performance, Maliqi wore a glamorous black and gold gown, with her black hair pulled back at the sides.

Given the singer's striking features and dark hair, it's no wonder why Graham Norton saw a similarity between her and TV personality, Kirstie Allsopp.

Shortly after, Allsopp replied to Graham Norton on Twitter. At first, she said: "Did I just imagine that? #EUROVISION @grahnort"

Before she added: "To be fair I would totally wear that black & gold dress. #EUROVISION"

Kirstie followed up on her previous tweets, saying: "I can retire now, my greatest moment has come & gone. Being mentioned by @grahnort on #EUROVISION it doesn’t come any better than this. #endof"

Eurovision viewers in the UK also picked up on the throwaway comment...
