Some Eurovision fans are finding the list of items banned from the contest this year "hilarious".Shopping trolleys, ladders, extension leads and golf balls are included on the list of prohibited items.The singing contest is being held in Lisbon, Portugal, for the very first time - with final taking place on 12 May.On the official Eurovision Song Contest website it states that the items will be confiscated for security reasons.
On the list are items you'd expect to be banned like explosives, toxic substances and drugs.
Then there's the more unusual things such as ropes, umbrellas and adhesive tape. Luckily, flags are not on the list.

The good news is no one is banned from bringing signs into the arena with those icons of banned things on them, so if you think flags are too mainstream, have I got an idea for you!— Eurovision Division (@EuroDivision) April 24, 2018
