Now it's Jedward ... the video game

JUST when you thought they couldn't get any bigger, singing sensations Jedward and their hair-raising images have been recognised by a global-selling computer game.

The Lucan twins' faces have been given the backing by producers of the world's most well-known video gaming company EA -- and can now boast at having a Sims version of themselves.

Created specially for the boys ahead of their performance on tonight's Eurosong competition on the Late Late Show, EA has designed two lookalike characters of the Lipstick singers.

The pop duo can be seen wearing trendy tartan blazers, complete with shirts and beige trousers.

The Sims game, which is one of the most popular on the market, lets players control what the characters wear, eat and do in their virtual world.

Brothers John and Edward Grimes (20) will go head-to-head with four other acts tonight on RTE's flagship entertainment programme to battle it out to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, in Azerbaijan.

The energetic Dubliners are hoping to wow audiences with their tune Waterline.
