We know this sounds like words picked at random from a headline generator, but we promise it isn’t.
Piers Morgan has found himself in a spat with Jedward, calling them “talentless clowns.”
Remember Jedward? Blonde whirlwind twins from the X-Factor singing show? Well, now they’re the paragons of virtue on social media.
Their real names are John and Edward Grimes, and they’ve taken to calling just about everyone out, including Piers Morgan.
On Twitter yesterday, they posted: “Get that Winston Churchill statue and f*** it into Piers Morgan’s back garden it has no place in today’s society!”
It comes after police were reportedly instructed to stand guard around the statue of Winston Churchill following the vigil for Sarah Everard at Clapham Common. A journalist tweeted that “a commanding officer told his colleagues “protect Churchill at all costs”. Chants of “protect women not statues”.’
Piers hit back at the twins, saying: “a) I’d be honoured to have that statue in my garden. b) Churchill saved Britain from the Nazis & contributed more to society every time he breathed than you talentless disrespectful clowns have done in your combined 58 years of gormless tuneless imbecility.”
Also, they had previously tweeted: “Police are more concerned about protecting the Winston Churchill Statue than women! Once an offensive statue is pulled down it’s not welcome.”
They also claimed they had repeatedly turned down the offer to appear on Good Morning Britain, because of Piers hosting.
However, Piers isn’t the only one on the receiving end of their wrath. They’ve also tweeted at the leader of the opposition, Sir Keir Starmer.
Meanwhile, they also challenged TV hosting duo Ant and Dec, asking when they will share their opinions too: “Like @AntandDec are you ever gonna speak out and use your platforms for change! We’ll send you a takeaway of common sense.”
The X Factor
Sharon Osbourne was previously a judge on The X Factor, and Jedward have tweeted at her too after she showed her support for Piers Morgan.
They also had a dig at another X Factor judge.
Louis was their mentor on the show, and put them through to the live rounds so the dig has taken people by surprise.
Anti-Vaxx and Anti-Mask
The pair previously made headlines after they called out one of The Corrs for spreading anti-vaxxer messages. Jim Corr is notoriously anti-vaccine and anti-mask.
Last year they called him out saying “your sisters never needed you” in a reference to his role alongside his three sisters in the platinum-selling band. Referring to one of the band’s most famous lyrics, they tweeted: “G’wan leave the whole country ‘breathless’ from Covid because of your idiotic behaviour.”
Corr responded: “Shut up you fools and grow a brain between you.”
Piers Morgan Rumours
There’s a lot of speculation about what’s next for Piers.
There are now claims that he’s in the middle of a ‘£10million bidding war’ following his Good Morning Britain exit.
A TV source told the Mirror :”He has had millions of pounds worth of offers. He turned GMB into a ratings hit, it seems everything he touches turns to gold.”
“People love his honesty, even the people that don’t like him, they can’t help but be interested in what he says.”
“Some of the offers have hit the £10million mark, and it seems he may be able to land exactly what he wants.”
Upon seeing the rumours on Twitter, Piers replied: “Only 10?”
