The United Kingdom was represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 1982 by Bardo with the song "One Step Further". It was chosen as the British entry through the A Song for Europe national selection process and placed seventh at Eurovision, receiving 76 points.

A Song for Europe 1982

The television show A Song for Europe was used once again to select the British entry, as it had since the United Kingdom's debut at the Contest in 1957. Terry Wogan once again hosted the contest, which was held on 24 March. Eight songs were shortlisted from those submitted to the Music Publishers Association.

At Eurovision

Since Bucks Fizz won the Contest in 1981, the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest was held in Harrogate and presented by Jan Leeming. The United Kingdom entered Bardo with "One Step Further", but it only gained 76 points and was positioned seventh over all, despite being in the top three for most of the point awarding. The winner of the Contest was Germany with Nicole's "Ein bißchen Frieden".
