Jedward The Stars Of New Christmas Ad For Peacocks

DOjb-EUW4AYOD_6.jpg_large

Fresh from their red carpet appearance at last weekend’s MTV EMAs in London, Jedward are starring in the new Christmas advertisement for UK fashion chain, Peacocks.

The ad, which debuted on Sunday night at 8pm, sees John and Edward hosting a Christmas party, for which they open their doors to fellow X Factor legends, Sam Bailey, Wagner, and Honey G.

Collaborating with Honey G in a fun rap written especially for the commercial, John and Edward are clearly the stars, with Sam Bailey expressing her admiration for them in a “behind the scenes” video, where she speaks of their professionalism and energy.

The ad finishes with the group flying off in a reindeer-led open sleigh, while Peacocks announce that all you need to do this Christmas is the wrapping. The entire ad is fun and festive, with a Christmassy feel-good factor that other ads could only hope for.

Starting tomorrow, 15 November, Peacocks will be giving shoppers the chance to win free clothes for a year (up to the value of £2400), simply by submitting a photo with one of their reindeers in store, or with the stars of the #xmasfactor TV campaign:

Full details are available on Peacocks’ website, where you will soon also be able to buy the same shirts as John, Edward, and the rest of the stars, are wearing in the ad.

Jedward Rock The EMAs

Jedward EMAs 1

Last Sunday saw Planet Jedward reach new levels of excitement as our favourite twins wowed the crowds on the red carpet at the MTV EMAs at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley.

Looking stunning in matching gold jackets, John and Edward found themselves ranked in many “best dressed” lists for the evening, including Cosmopolitan Magazine, Italy, who described them as, “Twin disco balls. They are irresistible. Full Stop”.

Several people commented on how John and Edward took time to speak to waiting fans and ensure everyone had a picture. They even took a selfie with Jackson Wang, who is a solo artist as well as member of KPop group, GOT7. After the show, Jedward headed to the star-studded after-party at Fountain Studios, where they met up with fellow MTV stars, Charlotte Crosby and Chloe Ferry, among others.

St Vincent de Paul Ireland have today launched their Twin campaign, and invited Ireland’s most famous twins, Jedward, to help out. Running throughout October, the campaign sets out to encourage people to “Donate with style, volunteer with passion”.

Speaking to The Irish Times, John and Edward said that they regularly visited charity shops, and had even purchased the jackets worn on their X Factor audition, way back in 2009, from that very St Vincent de Paul branch, in Sean McDermott St, Dublin.

Edward says that John has a CD obsession, while John added that St Vincent de Paul has definitely fed his collection. Additionally, Edward related about the time he found a leather flight jacket and he used to wear it all the time.

“We used to turn up in school and look the biz, and everyone thought we were loaded, but we weren’t.”

You can see the full video on The Irish Times’ website here. Find out more about St Vincent de Paul and their Twin campaign here, where you can also find details on how to volunteer with the society as well as donate.

Jedward visited Europe’s financial capital over the weekend, leading fans in a two day adventure through Frankfurt.

With fans already booked to visit Frankfurt because of the cancelled Eurovision Convention, John and Edward announced a few weeks ago that they would still be coming on the weekend of 9-10 September. They planned several activities, which went down very well with close to 100 fans representing almost ten countries.

After arriving early on Saturday afternoon, Jedward announced that we would all be meeting at Frankfurt Zoo at 3pm. Over two hours were spent there visiting the animals, taking photos, and generally having a good time, before once again meeting up at 7pm at Dippemess Fun Fair, the largest of its kind in the region, which takes place twice a year on the festival ground in front of Frankfurt’s ice hockey stadium, Eissporthalle.

The second day fans once again met up with John and Edward, this time at Eiserner Steg Bridge, ahead of a boat tour up and down the River Main. This was followed by a visit to Main Tower, where everyone enjoyed photos, chat, and spectacular views of Frankfurt and beyond.

John and Edward had already spent time with fans on Friday night, having gone down an absolute storm at Dundee University’s Fresher’s event.
