John and Edward Grimes land ITV2 show – ‘Jedward: Home Alone’

ITV2 has commissioned a three-part special from RDF Television entitled Jedward: Home Alone, which will follow X Factor’s twin phenomenon as they take their biggest step yet – leaving home.

Jedward: Home Alone is an access-all-areas pass to their private lives as, following their success on the X Factor, the duo leave the room they share at their family home. The series will film their trial run at cutting their aprons strings and attempting to set up home by themselves for a week. And in their new flat, in the heart of a hip part of Dublin, they will live in separate rooms for the first time in their lives.

The cameras will capture an intimate look at Jedward’s lives as they try to fend for themselves and cope with simple tasks that come with living on their own. Without any help from their mum, the duo will have to get stuck into to decorating, DIY, dining and maybe even dating. Will they cope or decide to run back home to their mum?

Viewers will meet their family and get the inside track on the hype and hysteria surrounding the nation’s favourite twins. The series will also follow them as they prepare for the launch of their new album, perform onstage, and deal with their fame whilst trying to adapt to their new surroundings and independence.

Jedward said: “We are so excited that we have our own show. People find it hard to define us and hopefully the show will give viewers and our fans an insight into our world during a really exciting point in our lives launching our debut album.”

Jedward: Home Alone (working title) is an RDF Television production for ITV2. The series was ordered by Zai Bennett, Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions at ITV and commissioned by Katy Thorogood, ITV’s Commissioning Editor Factual and Daytime. The executive producer is Jim Allen, RDF Television.

Katy Thorogoood said: “Ever since the X Factor, people have been fascinated by Jedward. Now’s our chance to find out what goes on in their unique world. We’re looking forward to working with RDF on this brand new ITV2 series which will give our viewers exclusive access to their lives.”
