Jedward are planning to battle this year's X Factor winner for Christmas number one.

John and Edward Grimes - who failed to win last year's ITV talent show but have gone on to become stars anyway - want to release a single at the same time as the winner to rival them in the charts.

John said: "Me and Edward are going to go for Christmas number one this year. We're going to do it and sell thousands of copies and out-sell the X factor. Millions! It's going to be huge. It's going to be going Christmas number one."

Edward added: "I think its going to be the fastest-selling single of all time."

The quiff-haired twins also revealed more about their plans to work with American psychedelic pop band MGMT.

Edward said: "MGMT are such a renowned band and everyone recognises their music and their music has featured in lots of movies and adverts and stuff and they're like really commercial,.

"But it was so cool me and John bumped into them at this party and they said they really wanted to work with us and do a pop electro album with us and they said they dug our whole presence and they gave us a high five and we gave them a high five."

John added: "They'd just wrote a really amazing dance track that would really suit me and Edward, they said we want to work with you guys or produce your next album."
