The band's Eurovison victory was overshadowed after allegations of drug use were made against their frontman Damiano David.
David was filmed during the contest, appearing to be stooping over a table and sniffing cocaine.
David vehemently denied these allegations and subsequently no drugs were found in his system when tested. He claimed that he had been clearing up some broken glass from the floor.
“For us, this wasn’t really a problem at all. We knew it was b*******. We never did that and we would never do such a thing on live television with 180million people watching us", their bassist Victoria de Angelis insisted.
“We’ve never used cocaine or other drugs so we immediately said, ‘Just test us because we have nothing to hide and we don’t want people to talk about stupid things like this and not our music’, he continued.
“We were so happy with our victory, so we wanted to keep the focus on us and not this stupid s***”.
