If will.i.am irritated you when he carried the torch, look away now! Z-listers Jedward run with Olympic flame… and what is it doing in IRELAND?
The Olympic Torch today crossed into the Republic of Ireland in a move designed to symbolise progress made by the peace process.

And while decision to take the relay into a country that is not actually playing host to the Games was met with a few raised eyebrows, a few more questions would have been asked when the honour of carrying the flame was handed to two of Ireland’s less illustrious celebrities.

Singing twins Jedward – famed more for their haircuts and bad dancing than their voices – were chosen to be among the torchbearers for the prestigious event.

And with their long spikey-blond quiffs the boisterous pair bore more than a passing resemblance to the iconic torch itself.

Their inclusion comes after Olympic bosses were criticised for allowing The Voice’s American judge Will.i.am carry the torch.
