Jedward bring 100 pairs of socks to Eurovision
Jedward have packed suitcases filled to the brim with clothes for their Eurovision visit to Dusseldorf.

John and Edward Grimes, better known as Jedward, have brought 100 pairs of socks and 24 pairs of trainers with them to the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.

The cheeky duo will be representing Ireland with their song Lipstick in Thursday's semi-final.

This year's Eurovision Song Contest began on Tuesday with the first of the semi-finals and will culminate with a live grand final on Saturday night.

Boy band Blue will be representing the UK and receive the added boost of being a guaranteed part of the final, due to new Eurovision rules allowing countries who broadcast the event being a secured place.

Identical twins Jedward shot to fame in 2009's X Factor, where they finished in 6th place behind winner Joe McElderry.
