Eurovision star Sam Ryder delighted shoppers in the capital with a surprise festive performance outside The Dome.

The singer braved the rain in Edinburgh on Wednesday to perform some Christmas classics, including Jingle Bells and Run Rudolph Run.

He also performed a stripped back version of his hit song Spaceman, which earned him second place at 2022’s Eurovision Song Contest.

As a result, the 2023 competition was hosted in Liverpool on behalf of first place winners Ukraine, who were unable to host amid ongoing conflict with Russia.
