During the European Broadcasting Union’s Press Conference, held alongside France TV last Friday, the now annual question was asked whether or not the United Kingdom would return to participating at the Contest as a whole nation. Martin Österdahl, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor, had the following to say:
“It’s possible we can get the BBC to join.”
Previously, ITV took on the participation for the whole of the United Kingdom during the first three Contests – 2003, 2004 and 2005. S4C took on participating for Wales in 2018 and 2019, but have since withdrawn due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
