Jedward 'Are More Popular Than The Beatles'
November 17, 2009
An online poll by bookmakers Paddy Power has shown that The X Factor's John and Edward are more popular than The Beatles.
The poll on the bookies' homepage simply asked 'Who is the greatest boyband ever?' and the god-awful Irish twins - known as Jedward - gained 45% of the vote compared to meagre 33% for The Fab Four.
Over 1,300 people had their say in the poll which also featured Take That in third place with 14% of the vote.
Paddy Power said "We're genuinely gob-smacked with this result and would have presumed that the Fab Four would have easily topped this poll but once again Jedward have exceeded expectations and caused yet another upset."
Harris later said he hoped the stunt made a “mockery” of the popular ITV 'talent' show.
