BBC to award Jedward their own chat show

Jedward are set to get their own TV show.

Jedward are set to get their own TV show.

The duo – made up of Irish twins John and Edward Grimes – impressed BBC bosses with their performance in the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night and they are now in talks to front their own programme.

John said: “We can’t say too much now, but it will include chat with celebrities and funny sketches and stuff.”

As well as a TV show, Jedward are convinced their music career is set to take off following their Eurovision performance, in which they were played eighth after impressing with their track 'Lipstick'.

Edward said: "If our plans work, we're going to take over Europe, we're going to go to Oz.

"We're going on a big massive European tour. We're doing so well with the song, ‘Lipstick’."

The boys – who shot to fame in the 2009 series of ‘X Factor’ – believe part of their appeal is their trademark high hair.

Edward added: "People were coming up to our fans from the UK offering them so much money for these Jed heads which you can only really get in the UK.

"Over there everyone's asking how we do our hair, they don't call it spiky they say it's very stiff."
