Jedward set for Celeb BB return

Jedward are set to return to ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

Jedward are set to return to ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

The large-quiffed TV twins – 20 year old John and Edward Grimes – finished third when they appeared as contestants on the first series of the show to air on Channel 5 earlier this summer, and will be ushered back into the reality TV house as part of a special challenge when it returns on January 5.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Jedward were two of the most popular housemates last time round and caused all sorts of mayhem in the house.

"Producers have asked them back this time in order to spread a bit of their zany magic on the new crop of housemates."

Jedward may not be the only set of twins to appear on the show, as it is strongly rumoured US Playboy Playmates Kristina and Karissa Shannon have been signed up to “sex up” the programme.

While Channel 5 has yet to confirm any of the celebrities who will appear in the show, other stars in the frame are ‘The X Factor’ bad boy Frankie Cocozza, ‘The Only Way is Essex’ star Kirk Norcross and ‘Loose Women' panellist Denise Welch.
