Eurovision superfan: 'It's like sport without the sport'
The final of this year's Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Copenhagen on Saturday.
For many, the show is a spectacular TV event and perhaps the chance of a once-a-year Eurovision party.
For others, however, it is more of a way of life.
Simon Bennett works in insurance in the City of London. He is also a Eurovision superfan - having been to the last 15 contests.
He also helps organise events for the global Eurovision fan club: OGAE.
BBC News followed Simon to Copenhagen to find out what keeps him going back year after year.
