Ex-Corrie star Denise channels her inner Jedward with funky new quiff

ANYONE who has ever met Jedward knows they make a lasting impression.

And this appears to be the case with former Coronation Street actress and TV presenter Denise Welch.

Denise (51) met the Dublin twins on Celebrity Big Brother, which she went on to subsequently win.

And it was Jedward who came to mind while Denise was in the make-up chair ahead of hosting her ITV show Loose Women.

Sporting a quiff that the former X Factor stars would be proud of, Denise gamely posed for a pic which she posted on Twitter with the word 'Jedwaaaard!' underneath.

By the time she appeared before the cameras on Tuesday's Loose Women, her hair had been 'flattened' into a more suitable do.

Meanwhile, Jedward are the latest to sign up for the benefit night for Aslan frontman Christy Dignam, who is battling cancer.

The Lucan twins are an unlikely addition to Night For Christy, in the Olympia on June 21. However, even more bizarre is that rockers Aslan will be providing the musical backing for the brothers in the theatre where they normally do panto.

"Jedward backed by Aslan? To quote one of our biggest hits, It's A Crazy World, but yes, it's true," Aslan guitarist Billy McGuinness told the Herald.

"John and Edward approached the committee organising the Christy show and asked if they could help and we agreed. We're grateful to have them on the bill. Aslan fans should be, too."
