Jedward have reportedly been offered £200,000 by ITV to appear in this year’s I’m A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here, but according to The Sun, Louis Walsh (the pair’s manager) is asking for an extra £100,000 before he lets the twins enter the jungle.
Whether they will be treated as one entity on the show is unclear, but what we do know is that if they do sign up (and when you consider that they were on the brink of signing for the 2010 series for as little as £20,00 – for that kind of money they would be crazy not to) they could well bump into former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.
The model, who has been hit with a super-injunction following an affair with an unidentified Premiership footballer (thought by many to be Ryan Giggs) is also reportedly on the brink of signing up for the reality show.
The Sun has reported that ITV are desperate to sign Jeward after their Eurovision performance pulled in 12.7 million viewers last Saturday.
“Whatever your thoughts are on Jedward’s ‘music’, you can’t argue that the lads are great entertainment – 13 million BBC viewers can’t be wrong,” a source said. “Watching them try to bolt down creepy crawlies will be TV gold.”
