The United Kingdom competed at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005, where they were represented by Joni Fuller with the song "How Does It Feel".

National final[edit]

A national final was held by Independent Television (ITV) to select the third Junior Eurovision entry for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005. The show was held on 4 September 2005 at the Granada Studios in Manchester, broadcast on digital channel ITV2, and was hosted by Michael Underwood and Nikki Sanderson. Televoting selected the winner from the eight competing entries, which votes separated into six voting groups based on geographical area.[1]

At Junior Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the contest, held in Hasselt, Belgium, Joni Fuller performed 5th in the running order of the contest, following Romania and preceding Sweden. At the close of the voting Joni has received 28 points, placing 14th of the 16 competing entries, giving the United Kingdom their worst entry at the contest.

ITV withdrew from the contest after 2005 due to poor viewing figures, and the termination of the Junior Eurovision contract signed by ITV in 2003. The UK has yet to return to the contest.
