The X Factor stars – real names John and Edward Grimes – opened up about their dating lives, revealing they are happy to date their own fans.
Jedward, 26, have a loyal fan base, but the brothers insist their fans are happy for each other to date them.
“We have – we’ve gone on dates with our fans,” Edward told The Sun.

They added: “They’re all happy for each other – when they see someone else going on a date.
“I picked this girl on the show [MTV’s Single AF] and we’d known she was a fan for eight or nine years.”
John explained that they have girls throwing themselves at them, but confessed: “We’ve got self-control”.

Edward added that they have many female fans who have supported the duo for “eight or nine years” and have grown up to be “less fan girly”.
It comes after the Irish lads were seen having a ‘snog-off’ on Single AF – a show which sees seven celebrities travel the world to find dates, with the help of their social media followers.
Viewers saw John and Edward set each other up on dates, taking the girls for some drinks and a game of ping pong.

Taking their dates to separate tables John and Edward proceed to involve themselves in a very uncomfortable snogging contest – with each twin trying to outdo the other.
Jedward’s appearance on the show comes just days after the twins opened up about their sexuality for the first time in a frank interview.
The boys, who shot to fame when they appeared on The X Factor in 2008, insisted they’re both straight, while also admitting that they prefer to keep their relationships out of the public eye.
