Irish pop duo Jedward have been spotted in north London after branding Louis Walsh an "evil manipulator" on X.

The twins, also known as John and Edward Grimes, were seen in Primrose Hill on Wednesday, March 13, looking round the shops in matching outfits.

This was their first public appearance since making the accusation against their former manager Louis Walsh.

Walsh, who managed the duo from 2009 to 2013, labelled them "vile" on Tuesday's episode of Celebrity Big Brother.

When Colson Smith asked for his opinion of Jedward on the show, Louis said "they were vile" and described them as a "novelty act" that was great for TV.

In spite of his negative comments, he added that Jedward had made him £5 million during his time as their manager.

Responding to Louis Walsh's remarks, Jedward posted a series of scathing tweets on their X account.

The duo said: "Louis reopened these wounds all by himself being spiteful and disrespectful we aren't going to have our character taken.

"Justice will be served."

During the controversial Celebrity Big Brother episode, Jedward was reportedly sharing a meal with long-time friend and ex-Towie star Gemma Collins.

Collins, who was recently spotted out for brunch with the pair in Hampstead, leapt to their defence on Instagram.

She said in a post: "Shocked to see what was said about my boys.

"They are the sweetest, talented, polite, educated kind boys I’ve ever met hence why they are always in my company!!!


Jedward's feud with Louis Walsh goes as far back as 2021, when the twins branded their former manager as "cold-hearted" and "two-faced".
