The unthinkable has happened. After achieving fame with their tone-less renditions on The X Factor, bleach-blonde brothers James and Edward Grimes – aka talent show abomination Jedward – are in negotiations to take their own particular brand of entertainment prime time with a new TV show co-hosting gig.
Jedward, who represented Ireland in last weekend’s Eurovision Song Contest with the song Lipstick and finished eighth (three places ahead of actual band Blue).
“We can’t say too much now, but it will include chat with celebrities and funny sketches and stuff,” the pair told The Daily Star.
While the comedy, sketch- and chat show amalgamation pieces come together, the duo are basking in their be-quiffed fame, which won them new fans at Eurovision and which is set to see them take their music on the road to Europe, Australia and beyond, if all goes to plan. One thing’s for sure, Louis Walsh must be beside himself with excitement at the prospect of seeing his discoveries back on UK television, full time.
