Edward Grimes has revealed that he feels as though the public may not want his double act to change.

Together with his twin brother John, the boys have been performing as Jedward since appearing on X Factor in 2009.

But in a new episode of makeover show 100% Hotter, Edward explained why they don’t change up their look too much.

Speaking on the show, John explained that they have a fanbase who love them as they are.


“It’s not like we’re trying to stay young but we’re like a brand and we have to stick to it,” John said.

“Look at Britney Spears, Shakira, they stick to the original look but change it slightly.”

On the show, the boys also explained that they don’t want their hair changed as part of the makeover.

“Don’t shave our hair off, we already have one Sinead O’Connor, Ireland doesn’t need three!” John said.

Edward also explained that he wouldn’t be changing it up too much, adding: “Sometimes think the public don’t let us grow up, they just want us as Jedward.”


We’re intrigued to see the boys’ new look.

100% Hotter airs Thursday at 10 pm on Channel 5.
