Dannii 'wanted to call son Jedward'

Dannii Minogue wanted a Jedward baby, Edward Grimes has joked.

The Irish singer - one half of Jedward - reckoned that the X Factor judge really wanted to call her newborn son John Edward rather than Ethan Edward.

"Dannii's had a baby - she called her baby Ethan Edward and she clearly wanted to call it John Edward," he quipped.

Edward - who finished in sixth place with his brother last year - said it is "a good thing" that celebrity judges like Nicole Scherzinger and Katy Perry have joined the panel for the seventh season.

"It's made it really really interesting this year, it's made it different," he continued.

"It's really cool having Nicole Scherzinger, Pixie Lott, Geri Halliwell and Katy Perry. I feel like it's taken The X Factor up to another level. It will be a really good thing, with the whole format changed. It's good to have change because people get bored."

The 18-year-old claimed Cheryl, who was recovering from malaria, and Dannii, who was on maternity leave, will be terribly missed.

"It will make people appreciate Dannii and Cheryl more because they haven't been on the show and people will be glad to see them on the live shows," Edward added.

The X Factor airs on ITV1 on August 21 at 7.30pm. Jedward launched the Rowntree's Randoms Foamy Gnome On The Roam tour.
