A punter in Dublin has bet €5,000 on Irish act Jedward to win the Eurovision Song Contest at odds of 20/1.

Speaking about the bet placed with William Hill, company spokesman Tony Kenny said: "We've already taken bets on Jedward from punters in over 20 different countries across Europe. You have to say Jed-mania has definitely struck Europe!

"The biggest bet we've taken on the twins was the €5,000 bet in Dublin, but we've taken thousands of other bets on the Grimes'."

Jedward are at 6/1 to win their Eurovision Song Contest Semi-Final on Thursday and 1/4 to qualify.
