Jedward reveal vow of celibacy

Jedward have taken a vow of celibacy as they don't want to risk becoming the victims of a kiss-and-tell from their female fans.

Twins John and Edward Grimes, 19, who found fame on The X Factor, told GT magazine they are constantly turning down offers from girls.

John said: "We know all these girls but we can't go out with them because it'd be a huge press story."

The Lipstick singers - who are representing Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest this year - said they had accepted there were rumours about their sexuality, but they understood it came with fame and insisted they are straight.

The brothers said: "It happened to Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers.

"You've got to realise what comes with being in the public eye. We don't mind if people call us gay; it's not a big deal. We like girls."
