THE fop-haired duo have succeeded where a multi-billion euro bank bailout failed.

Double-handedly, Jedward have sent consumer confidence soaring as bookmakers revealed confident punters have placed a bet on the twins taking the winner's podium at Eurovision.

After they cartwheeled their way into the Eurovision final in Dusseldorf last Thursday night, bookies swiftly slashed their odds.

Paddy Power revealed it had cut the odds on the twins winning the contest to 4/1.

The pair still remain as second favourites behind the 6/4 French double-platinum selling tenor Amaury Vassili.

Jedward are followed by Azerbaijan at 9/1 and the UK at 10/1.

Jedward started the week at 20/1 with one bookmaker.
