Pop twins Jedward shaved their trademark quiffs for a very good cause on last night's Late Late Show as the special fundraising edition raised over €2.5 million for the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day.

John and Edward Grimes, 29, played their part in the event by going bald.

The brothers lost their mother Susanna to cancer in 2019.

Edward said: “We’ve had this hair for over ten years, It’s part of our identity. I don’t think we’d be here today if we didn’t have the hair but this is the first time were going to have hair like this since the beginning of Jedward.

“To everyone who has cancer, you’re not alone. Everyone goes through cancer and has stories to tell. Our granddad had lung cancer and lived for 20 years with one lung and he had skin cancer.”

Before the head shaving, the twins performed a rendition of the song True Colours.

Jedward tweeted before and after pictures following the head shaving to encourage people to donate to the Irish Cancer Society fundraiser.
