Irish X Factor stars Sean and Conor Price will be taking to the stage this Christmas for the Olympia Theatre panto.

Just a week after they departed the hit ITV talent show Sean (18) and Conor (15) have landed roles in Polly and the Beanstalk opposite former Mrs Brown's Boys star Rory Cowan.

Cowan recently replaced Al Porter who left his role in the wake of several allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

Sean and Conor had consistently impressed the X Factor judges and have honed their skills on stage over the course of the live shows which saw them perform every Saturday night to an audience of millions.

Prior to the show they had been regular buskers on Grafton Street and Blessington, where they live with their parents.

They're not the first sibling duo to appear in the Olympia panto.  Fellow former X Factor stars Jedward appeared in Beauty and the Beast, Jedward and the Beanstalk and Jedward and the Magic Lamp at the theatre.

The panto also stars Dustin the Turkey, Fair City star Ryan Anderws, and Michaela O'Neill and runs from December 15 until January 14.
