It's been 21 Jepic years, as twins celebrate birthday

HAPPY 21st birthday to madcap twins Jeward, who celebrated the milestone anniversary with an invitation to re-appear on the show that first made them famous.

John and Edward Grimes were inundated with messages from thousands of their fans.

"We are 21, we are so happy. 21 years of Jepic times," they said.

They also called on DJ Fearne Cotton to sing them Happy Birthday, live on her Radio One show.

The Diary can reveal how the pair are due to return to the show where it all began for them -- The X Factor. Negotiations are ongoing to bring them back for The Xtra Factor.
