Jedward received some devastating news last night, just moments after they came second in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.
The Dublin twins, who were runners up next to winner Coleen Nolan, had no idea that their father was fighting for his life in hospital, as their dad John Snr didn’t want to jeopardise their time in the house.
The pop duo’s mum and manager Susanna Condron revealed the news to the Daily Star, “The last week has been very stressful for Jedward’s family.
“John Snr has been in intensive care. He insisted Edward and John must not be informed about his critical condition.
A huge Thank you to our Jedicated fandom and all our new supporters for believing in us, throughout the series X

“He stated he would not jeopardise their chances of reaching the final as there would have been legions of disappointed fans,” she added.
Despite receiving bad news upon leaving the house, the twins were greeted by an amazing reception at Elstree Studios, as fans were left outraged that they were beaten by Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan.
Many fans took to Twitter, with some even claiming that CBB was fixed:
So angry Colleen won. Worst result possible. Kim and Jedward were robbed. She was a bully #cbb
