Jedward 2nd place in Celebrity Big Brother UK

Jedward have come second place in the final of Celebrity Big Brother UK. In comparison, when they entered the house in the 8th series of the show the boys came in third place. The result came as a shock to manner as the pair were the hot favourites to win the show in the last few weeks of the show.

Two time Eurovision contests Jedward finished Celebrity Big Brother in second place. Despite being favourites to win the show in the later weeks, they faced fierce competition from Scottish actor James Cosmo and cleaning expert and TV presenter Kim Woodburn.

Jedward have had a rollercoaster of a journey on the show. They were put up for eviction by their fellow housemates at every single nomination event. Somehow managing to win the public’s vote every time with their Irish charm. Their start to the show didn’t quite go so well. The boys received boos from the audience when they first took to the stage before entering the house and additionally, after their brief interview with host Emma Willis, John fell off the stage and hurt his back. This meant that he had to temporarily leave the show to seek hospital treatment. Just 30 minutes after he entered, leaving Edward to mingle on his own.

On Wednesday night, viewers saw the boys participate in a special task. Along with Nicola McClean they joined the band The Housemate Mayhem.

The other house mates were their roadies who had to cater for their every rock n roll needs. As part of the task, together they held auditions in the snug to find a new member for the group. They unanimously decided that CNo (Coleen Nolan) was the right person to join the band. The final part of the task was to perform for the other roadies. They displayed an energetic performance of Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer.

John and Edward made the viewers blush when they were shown in the bath with nothing but bubbles covering their modesty.

The twins even decided to invite 75 year old Kim Woodburn to join them however, she politely declined. After realising they had no underwear to put on after their bath, they asked the housemates if they could borrow any underwear. They decided that the latest evictee Calum Best’s underwear were too big they asked Bianca if they could borrow hers. After Bianca said yes and offered up her thrill thong, Edward stated: ‘They’re camouflage, they’re see-through, they’re kind of crazy… Maybe wear it back to front.’ In the end, they decided against it.

Jedward also scored points from the audience for being friendly with Kim Woodburn. Despite the rest of the house taking a dislike to her after a series of alterications. The boys kept her company so she wasn’t alone.
