Pop twins Jedward are set to shave their trademark quiffs on Friday's edition of the Late Late Show to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day.

Friday's show will be dedicated to Daffodil Day, which cannot take place as normal this year due to the pandemic.

"We are shaving our quiffs off to support the fighting heroes going through cancer," said 29-year-old John and Edward Grimes, whose mother, Susanna, passed away after battling cancer in 2019.

"We're hopeful the funds raised will contribute to a cancer-free future. We are honouring the memory of all those who have come and gone, we are sending strength and love to all those suffering.

"Don't give up! It's heart-breaking that all our loved ones aren't with us, but they will be looking down on us from heaven."

Daffodil Day, the annual Irish Cancer Society fundraiser, was also cancelled in 2020 due to the lockdown. This year, The Late Late Show vowed to get behind the initiative and raise vital funds to support patients with cancer and their families.

Speaking about losing their mother, who was also their manager for many years, to cancer two years ago, Jedward said, "Rest In Peace Mammy You live on through us. We will miss you and your smile.

"You shaped the character of who we are. Mammy lived with cancer for many years but was always full of life! You live on in our Memories and will always be alive in our Hearts."
