Oh yes they do! Jedward sign up for new panto

MOVE over Madonna and forget The Stone Roses because Jedward are coming back for another panto.

The Herald can reveal that the pop duo have signed up for another Christmas at the Olympia.

After a massively successful and sold-out stint last Christmas, the pop duo revealed they will take to the stage once again for 2012's festive period.

With just a week until they attempt to become Ireland's Eurovision entry for the second year in a row, the brothers agreed to the deal.

Now panto goers are being urged to snap up their tickets quickly to get a chance to see the Lucan twins in action, for what is expected to be a limited run.

Starring in Jedward And The Magic Lamp at Dublin's Olympia Theatre, the Grimes brothers will once again team up with Linda Martin, Alan Kavanagh and a cast of more than 100 to entertain their legions of supporters.

The popular Lipstick singers raked in more than €1m in ticket sales last time around, when they performed 34 matinee and evening shows of Jedward And The Beanstalk.

The energetic personalities are currently touring the country, in between rehearsals for another battle of Eurosong.

After coming eighth in Germany last year, the X Factor graduates are hoping to represent Ireland for the second time at the upcoming Eurovision song contest, which takes place in Azerbaijan.

And that's not all the hair-raising twins are up to.

It has emerged that Jedward, who are managed by Louis Walsh, have bagged their own TV 'bloopers' show on Channel 5. They are due to appear on screens this spring with what is sure to be a telly hit, Jedward's Weird Wild World, a six-part series.
