Punters get Jedmania – Grimes twins to hit bookies for a million?

| 10.05.2011

JEDWARD COULD hit the bookies with a million-pound payout if they win Eurovision, according to Ladbrokes.

The firm report a flood of money for the wacky twins and they now trade as 7/1 second favourites having been installed as 25/1 long shots when betting began.

Domestic confidence is at an all time high with UK entry Blue also well backed, leaving the bookies cheering on their continental rivals.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Punters have latched onto Jedward as likely winners and are backing them off the boards. We’re firmly cheering anyone from the continent now as a win for either the UK or Ireland could hit the industry for a million quid.”
