United Kingdomentered the Junior Eurovision Song Contestthree times, and the broadcaster is ITV. They have been more successful in this than in the Eurovision Song Contest lately. Tom Morley(2003) and Cory Spedding(2004) sang both for the peace in the world and Joni Fuller(2005) described her feelings. The UK withdrew in 2006 because of a lack of interest. The BBC, Channel 4 and S4C had no intention of broadcasting the contest, this meant that the UK was absent from a Eurovision contest for the first time since 1958.
The UK holds the third highest number of total points: 140 points in 2004. The results of the partipication has been successful. They have taken a 2nd place as well as 3rd place. Due to low viewing figures, ITV withdrew from JESC 2006.
The Welsh broadcaster Sianel Pedwar Cymru (S4C) had shown interest in participating for the UK in 2008, hoping to share the
Welsh languagewith a wider audience. The contest would therefore be a bilingual broadcast that would be broadcast in Wales on analogue, and on S4C Digidolin the rest of the UK. In the end, S4C chose not to broadcast the contest, so the UK are less likely to return in 2008. But BBCor ITVmight be broadcasting the contest in 2008.
