I wonder when the time comes for Wales to host Junior Eurovision, the BBC might put forward a UK entry or at least screen it on one of their channels.
Where would it go though? ITV aired it on its main channel in I think 2003? and it bombed ratings wise, got shifted to ITV2 the next year and was never seen again. Some could argue we never got over Minipops.
A reminder that the contest now is subtlety different than that which started the event and was shown on ITV. It’s now no longer skewed as children entertaining an adult oriented audience. The move to a late afternoon event has translated it into juniors and families concept. It would fit on CBBC now easily. We don’t yet have confirmation of the event start time this year but
1630CET/1530GMT would be consistent with recent ones.
It’s also simulcast on Fun Kids Radio too
