Every cloud has a silver lining - or in Jedward's Edward Grimes's case, a gold one.
After tearing his knee ligament while dancing on stage, the X Factor star yesterday rocked up at Dublin airport in a wheelchair carrying a pair of golden crutches.
And while the teenager faces knee surgery following the fall, he seemed to be in high spirits, posing for waiting photographers holding up his golden crutches for all to see
Twin brother John played the part of caring sibling by pushing Edward through the airport wearing matching Puma high-top trainers.
Edward injured himself during a lively Ghostbusters performance at T4 On The Beach in Weston-super-Mare on Sunday.
He valiantly attempted to finish the routine but was rushed to hospital soon afterwards.
Now the teenager faces knee surgery after tearing knee ligaments and has been warned he may never dance again.
The singer revealed: 'In hospital they said I might not be able to dance again and needed surgery.
'They say it will be OK and I can go on tour, but I might have to go round in a wheelchair.
'I'll be having surgery as soon as possible in case anything goes wrong and I need more surgery.
'If I couldn't dance again I'm not sure what would happen, so I am a bit worried. The show is about dancing and performance.'
Edward kept his word and Jedward made it to the Ipswich gig. Edward ditched his crutches and wheelchair and hopped around while John was his energetic self. Here's some vids from Youtube.
All The Small Things
It’s because of their love hate appeal to the British public that John and Edward have survived this long in the spotlight, and the Irish teenagers realise they’re going to have to keep playing that game if they want to survive in the cut throat world of entertainment.
In the first part of my interview, we found out about Edward’s secret crush on Cheryl Cole, but now the gloves off and Simon Cowell is in the firing line …
“So, Simon Cowell-” … that was enough, there was no need to listen to the question, they were off … Jedward Ltd surged into action …
“He invites us to loads of things, and deep down he’s a huge massive fan, but he can’t come out publicly and say that.” Says Edward before I have a chance to think.
“Me and John didn’t zone into the whole X Factor thing, we detached from that and we do everything for ourselves now … everyone else [other 2009 contestants] are kind of relying on the X Factor, but we’re just thinking about our fans and proving ourselves to people.”
But what’s it like to always get criticised? I asked what they thought of Steve Brookstein’s (the first X Factor winner) Twitter mocking of Edward’s recent accident …
Whether it was rehearsed or not, they had the perfect answer ...
“Who’s Steve Brookstein?” said John with a deadpan stare.
“I don’t think that’s very nice … I think that whoever said that is not that nice, if it happened to them they’d probably be dead or something, because they normally just stand there and sing and be boring .
“Our fans know who we are OK, so screw the rest.”
Does that include Simon Cowell? I couldn’t help but enquire.
Edward immediately answered “Yeah”, then looked to his brother and said , “What?”
“That’s a bad word.” mumbled John and once again I felt like the boys were playing me, in the nicest possible way.
But before the dust from the Cowell bomb had a chance to settle, John began waxing lyrically in a by now rather predictably mature way about fame:
“There are always people on the Internet, or wherever they are, who write mean things about everybody. You’ve got to realise mean things are written about Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, all the greats … you can say woah, they’re writing that about me, but you just gotta realise that they’re writing it because they want our fans to go ‘you be quiet, John and Edward are amazing’ … they’re mostly probably just little Emos at home, little nerds writing stuff on the Internet.”
Edward chipped in, “I think in a way that it’s cool that people have their own opinions, we don’t mind what they have to say … you’re not going to please everybody, everyone has their own taste …
“Me and John, at a show, we usually get a couple of boos, but everyone warms up to us in the end.”
Finally, I asked the boys what they wanted out of this topsy turvy career they were carving out for themselves:
“Ultimately I want us to reach our potential and be in control of every aspect of our careers, coz I feel like now there are certain limits like ‘oh you can’t do that’, I feel like we wanna have full on reigns and do whatever we want to do.” answered John without needing to ponder.
“I want to get our own TV programme, I want our own chat show where all the American stars and everything come onto it, coz all the chat shows right now are all so scripted.”
Not content with taking over the airwaves, the lads couldn’t resist one last dig at their competitors before we finished:
“I think all these other artists, they’re just gonna become crack heads or whatever and they’re gonna just crash and burn … we’re not gonna crash and burn.”
Whether Edward is right remains to be seen, but with a new record and ITV2 reality series on the way, one thing’s for sure, we haven’t heard the last of John and Edward quite yet.

Injured twin Edward Grimes has been told he may not be able to dance again if he doesn't have specialist surgery on his knee.
But the Jedward star - who said he heard his knee ligament snap during a performance at T4 On The Beach in Somerset - admitted he was more upset that he had to tear his famous Ghostbusters costume for medical staff on his way to hospital.
The X Factor star was rushed to hospital in London straight after the performance, which saw him fall to the ground.
He said his knee packed in when he jumped off a set of stairs on to the stage near the start of the set.
He explained: "From the minute I jumped off the stairs, I was in pain. I was smiling but my cheeks were collapsing in like I wanted to cry.
"I heard something snap and then I collapsed.
"Our performance is normally full-on energy and even with me being injured, it still had more energy than other acts."
Edward, 18, who releases the Blink-182 cover All The Small Things on July 19 and debut album Planet Jedward on July 26, admitted he couldn't stop crying after the accident.
"The next band were trying to get on after us, but I collapsed on the ground," he said. "In the end, I was crying so much and in so much agony that the ambulance men wanted to give me morphine, which I said 'no' to.
"Everyone was around my stretcher and it felt like a Michael Jackson situation.
"They gave me an oxygen mask and I felt like I was on another planet.
"I was totally out of it and I think I might have passed out."
Edward now has to go to Ireland, where he is due to have surgery before going back on tour on August 3. He added: "In hospital they said I might not be able to dance again and needed surgery. They say it will be OK and I can go on tour, but I might have to go round in a wheelchair.
"I'll be having surgery as soon as possible in case anything goes wrong and I need more surgery.
"If I couldn't dance again I'm not sure what would happen, so I am a bit worried. The show is about dancing and performance."
Edward, who claims he felt like he was letting his brother John down, admitted he's been distraught about his injury.
He continued: "I can't fit into my trousers and they had to rip my Ghostbusters outfit - the one I wore on The X Factor - which was so upsetting.
"They wanted to put a massive plaster cast on me and I have loads of bandages on it."
Edward is determined the injury will not stop him from coming to Scotland in the near future and is looking forward to the start of the boys' show Jedward: Home Alone on ITV2, even though he might have to spend more time under his mum's care.
Brother John added: "This is the worst thing that has ever happened to us. I could feel his pain.
"The last time Edward was in hospital was with German measles. "Hopefully this will make us stronger and we've had t h e b e s t g e t well presents from all our fans."
Do you believe in a psychic links, do things really happen for a reason or are they just coincidences?
Well, Jedward’s Edward Grimes thinks that he’s got something going on with Cheryl Cole after both he and the X Factor judge collapsed over the weekend.
John’s dream date would be American popstar Taylor Swift, but it seems Edward is keen to take Ms. Cole out.
“I’m gonna pick Cheryl Cole now that she’s back out there
“She’s kind of old for me, but, she collapsed when I collapsed, we had that little twin thing going on.”
I asked whether he thought he had a chance with Cheryl and John asnswered for him,
“He’s got more than a chance!”
When I asked what he meant by that, John and Edward smiled at each other and began to laugh … was I being wound up … was this all part of the 2010 Jedward media machine? It was difficult to tell, these guys were good.
As if to validate his crush on Cheryl, Edward explained:
“Everynight after the X Factor they used to have the glasses and they’d leave them the next day. Cheryl used to have lipstick around her one and there was water left in it … and I’d drink out of it, that was cool.”
He added: “But really, I don’t think it’s gonna happen, yeah, I don’t know, what age is Cheryl Cole?”
I told him and immediately he changed his tune.
“… oh Britney Spears, maybe Britney Spears, she’s about that age … oh, but Britney has kids and I’d have to look after them …”
But it’s not just fantasy dates for Jedward, they reckon they’ve got female fans after them too:
“Ke$ha says she wants to make out with us, make out with both of us at the same time, we’ve met her like 4 times and there is a definitely a connection …” boasts Edward.
When John and Edward Grimes were finally eliminated from the X Factor on November 22nd 2009, I don’t think I was the only one who thought their 15 minute flirt with fame, as entertaining as it had been for the nation, was about to end, and the teenage twins would return to Ireland to carry on their ‘normal’ lives with pop-stardom as a footnote in their diary.
They’d been cheeky chappies throughout, and although they’d expended more energy than nuclear power plant in meltdown, they were always a little lacking in the singing department. So it seemed unlikely I’d be talking to them about their new album 7 months later, let alone be impressed.
From the moment I arrived at the central London hotel to meet Jedward, it became clear that though their time in the spotlight has been relatively brief, they already play the game like real pros.
“Nice shirt, I think I have one like that.” said Edward as he hobbled past on crutches to use the toilet.
“Beehive City, yeah, I might have read that site.” said John as we sat down and waited for his temporairly disabled twin to return.
Where were the babbling teenagers that I’d seen Dermot O’Leary congratulate and console on the X Factor? Those days it seems have gone. Although the boys are still only eighteen and remain excitable, fun and wildly energetic (busted up leg or not), they have matured at a collosal pace into media savy and thoughtful interviewees who know what they want, and know how to tell you it.
“You learn as much from your mistakes as you do from your success.” mused John. “I think all these other artists, they’re just gonna become crack heads or whatever and they’re gonna just crash and burn … we’re not gonna crash and burn.”
Edward then went on to explain the masterplan for the Jedward machine with great eloquence and insight that could see him hired by a record label as a consultant if the pop thing doesn’t work out:
“I think it’s
As time began to run out, the twins insisted that I stay as long as possible. They wanted to talk, and they have a lot to say.
“Ask me real quick, do quick answers, let’s go …” shouted John excitedly as I got the one more question look from the PR man.
“We don’t have time to have a girlfriend, we’re only eighteen … I feel if we had a girlfriend it’s a totally different dilemma …” said John.
I couldn’t help but enquire … you’d have a girlfriend each I presume?
“Yeah we would!” said John, completely dead pan before looking at his twin and collapsing into fits of laughter.
But with the usual Jedward composure,
about the consistency and staying out there … coz remember Rhiannah, she had her first album and everyone was like, ‘oh she’s OK’ and then she came back with Good Girl Gone Bad and everyone was like ‘Oh my God’ … the same with Beyonce, she was ‘OK’, but then she came out with her current album now and everyone thinks she took it to a new level.”
They’re like the double act from heaven. Perhaps it’s twin telepathy, or maybe they were just born to be in showbusiness but you get the feeling if you wound them up and let them go, they’d tell stories and answer each other’s questions day and night for weeks.
Edward soon got things back on track:
“I don’t think I want to have a girlfriend, because we have our fans and I’d rather spend time with our fans than a girlfriend because the fans come first.”
With time running dangerously low, and their album Planet Jedward (out July 26th, as the kept reminding me) deserving a plug by this stage, I will leave you with Jedward on their place in the modern music scene:
“You go to T4 and these awards, and I feel all these artists have nothing on us.”
“We could easily, not walk over them, but we know we have the big potential, we’re so focused, so driven, I feel all the other UK popstars, that’s it, they’re not working hard enough, but they don’t want to be the best. They’ve all been mastered and made perfect …
“We could easily take them anyday.”
If this encounter is anything to go by, I think they might just be right.

Doctors have told the cheeky scamp he must not walk for FOUR WEEKS after ripping tendons in his knee in an on-stage fall at the weekend.
But the X Factor novelty told TV Biz that despite the "incredible pain" he did not want be like U2 frontman Bono, who pulled out of headlining Glastonbury after hurting his back.
Edward was comforted by twin brother John, 18, after he left hospital in London yesterday.
The pair now aim to be back on tour in just three weeks. Ed said: "Jedward is a professional band.
"We have to go on for our fans. We don't want to be like U2 - we'll carry on even if I have to go on stage on crutches.
"We should do a hospital scene as part of the tour. That might work."
The poor lad looked in agony after the T4 On The Beach disaster on Sunday in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.
He said it was "the most painful thing that has ever happened to me", adding: "I could hardly walk and I just thought I needed to make it look like part of the routine.
"I think John felt some of my pain because of the twin thing.
"I felt like I was leaving him to be a solo artist - and that's not what Jedward's about."
The super-quiffed Irish lad spent ten hours in hospital in London as docs gave him X-rays and other tests.
He said: "I was crying like a baby in the ambulance, thinking I've got to do a tour in Ireland and promote the album.
"When they were examining me at the hospital I kept thinking my leg was going to snap if I straightened it out.
"The doctor wanted to give me morphine but I'm like, 'No, I'm not a druggie'.
"We don't do bad stuff. I had oxygen, gas and air and it made me feel really weird."
He will be in Dublin today, where he'll see local specialists and have surgery on his knee.
In the meantime it will be a decent bowl of Irish stew and some TLC from his mum.

On twitter UMIerland (Universal Music Ireland) confirmed that Edward torn knee ligaments. Here is the tweet:
"Following a fall during a performance at T4 On The Beach this Sunday we can confirm that Edward has torn his knee ligaments and will require surgery on his injuries. He is expected to make a quick recovery and Jedward are determined to see out their album promotion and Irish tour commitments."
SURPRISE act Jedward got more than they bargained for at T4 On The Beach when one half of the brother duo Edward Grimes fell during his performance.
The X Factor star injured his leg during the track Under Pressure and the pain worsened just as they changed tracks to Ice Ice Baby leaving him crawling across the stage.
At first his brother John did not see him tumble and he continued singing before realising what had happened when Edward rose back to his feet.
John said: "You've hurt your leg. Are you all right man?", to which he replied: "I'm cool."
Edward continued with the performance either singing from his knees or hopping across the stage but as soon as their performance was over he was treated in an ambulance backstage.
He was then taken to Weston General Hospital in the resort to get his leg examined.
T4 spokesman Adam Freedman says they do not believe his leg is broken but said it is "not in a good way."
He said: "He was treated on site in an ambulance.
"The last I saw was his brother John looking a bit happier than he was after the fall.
"I don;t think anything is broken but he is certainly not in a great way.
"He was taken to Weston General Hospital and that was the last we heard was an hour and a half ago (7.30pm).
"As soon as we know anymore we will keep you updated."

FYI: On twitter get #GetWellSoonEdwardGrimes trending! :)
They are famous for their energetic dance routines.
But Edward Grimes of The X Factor favourite duo Jedward found there are some drawbacks to their exuberant moves as he fell over while performing Ghostbusters at T4 On The Beach today.
The 18-year-old singer was bounding around the stage with his twin brother John when he twisted his leg during a particularly difficult move.
He was then taken to a local hospital where he was being treated for his injuries - believed to either be a broken leg or twisted knee ligaments.
After the fall, Edward clutched his leg in agony and struggled to get up as he tried to continue the routine.
However, ever the professional, Edward performed the rest of the routine either on his knees or hopping around the stage.
Clearly in pain, he finished the performance before giving twin John a huge high five as he completed the routine.
After coming off stage, an ambulance was called for the teen singer, who looked upset and worried as he was taken to hospital.
And he wasn't the only one concerned about his injuries - John was right behind his twin as he was loaded into the ambulance and rushed to hospital.
While some fans took to Twitter to mock Edward's accident, others were genuinely concerned for The X Factor star.
A spokesperson for the Irish duo could not be reached for comment.
Get Well Soon Edward!
I watched T4 on the beach and saw that poor Edward injured his leg while performing! The boys performed a medley of Ghostbusters/Under Pressure/All The Small Things.
