Eurovision will no longer be shown on a state TV channel in China after the broadcaster censored gay-themed content during the semi-finals.

Mango TV decided not to air Ryan O'Shaughnessy's song 'Together' which depicted a same sex couple.

The European Broadcasting Union, which puts on the show, says it's terminated its relationship with the channel for this year.

It says Mango TV's decision isn't in line with their values of universality and inclusivity.
