Chance to meet X Factor twins Jedward

ipswich: Spikey-haired pop stars Jedward are coming to Ipswich – and YOU could win the chance to meet them.

The former X Factor favourites are set to perform in Christchurch Park on July 9, when they will appear on the same Big Friday bill as dance group Diversity and singers Stacey Solomon, Jamie Archer and Danyl Johnson.

And The Evening Star is offering two lucky readers the chance to catch up with the Dublin-born twins on the night.

Jedward – real names John and Edward Grimes – shot to fame when they appeared on the hit ITV talent show last year.

Although they didn’t win, the duo quickly became the X Factor’s biggest talking point thanks to their larger than life performances and outrageous hairstyles.

Jedward’s debut single, Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby), was released in February, reaching number two in the UK Singles Chart and number one in the Irish singles charts.

The boys’ next single will be a cover of Blink-182’s All the Small Things and is due to be released later this month, along with their debut album, Planet Jedward.
