The Brothers Grimes, better known as Jedward

Jedward want to be ‘X Factor’ judges.

The twin singing sensation – who shot to fame on the ITV1 show in 2009 – are keen to sit alongside former mentor Louis Walsh as “a devil and an angel” at the judges’ houses stage of the competition later this year.

Edward explained: “We want to be at the judges’ house with Louis. We want to sit either side of Louis like a devil and an angel.

“We asked him and he said yes, as long as Simon Cowell agrees. We could totally do it.”

With show boss Simon and Cheryl Cole having quit ‘The X Factor’ to concentrate on the US launch of the series and Dannii Minogue having left due to scheduling clashes with ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, Jedward – real names John and Edward Grimes – think the judging panel will be “weird”.

However, they believe it’s good Dannii has quit because her baby son Ethan won’t think she “ditched him” for the show.

Edward added to Star magazine: “It’s so weird because now Louis is the only original judge. But I think it’s cool because Dannii has a baby and you don’t want Ethan to have withdrawal symptoms from her and say, ‘OMG, my mum ditched me for ‘X Factor’.”
