Jedward back Gay Byrne for president
Teen pop idols Jedward have backed Gay Byrne for Irish president as the next best candidate for the post after, er, themselves.
The brothers, at a signing event in Cork, rubbished the ageism argument and said Gaybo (77) would be likely to get their vote.
Their endorsement came as they signed copies of their CD 'Victory' for hordes of fans gathered at a shopping centre in Cork.
Both John and Edward said that Gaybo would make a chart-topping president, and said that if he does half as good a job as president as he did hosting The Late Late Show, he'd be unbeatable.
Edward added that if they were to run Gay would have no chance. "If we were allowed to contest the election we would totally win."
