It looks like Jedward could be heading into Celebrity Big Brother next year after having a few money troubles.

The twins John and Edward Grimes first found fame on The X Factor in 2009. They were mentored by Louis Walsh and were quite the controversial act and even though they were both loved and hated they managed to come sixth in the competition.

Since their X Factor appearance they have gone on to have their own Planet Jedward Tour, they've released albums, had their own ITV2 documentary Jedward: Let Loose and appeared on CBB series 8 in 2011. Although the boys came third on the reality show – losing to Kerry Katona and Paddy Doherty - according to The Mirror the bosses of the Channel 5 TV show are keen to get the boys back in the house.

A source told the publication: "Jedward caused chaos when they were in the house five years ago and viewers loved it.

"They know they are TV gold."

The boys could be tempted to join the show for the money because their entertainment business has apparently lost €234,000 in past two years.

This new series of Celebrity Big Brother will apparently be titled Gold Stars v New Stars which will feature a lot of the stars from older series. We think Jedward would be a great addition to the house as some of the other reported housemates are Danielle Armstrong, Heidi and Spencer, Stephen Bear and plenty of other celebrities.
