John and Edward, whose mother Susanna died in 2019 from cancer, said: "We just want to thank everyone in the country for donating. It’s such great unity that the country needs, and it’s such a great cause. It’s an exhilarating feeling just to be here."

"This is the first time we’ve not had this hair since we were Jedward," they added.

Filan’s mother died of lung cancer in December 2019, with his father died in October 2020 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

He recalled his mother’s positive outlook saying, "She was amazing, she was very positive, very determined to fight it, a very strong person and she was like just a pillar of our family. It showed when she was fighting it for years."

"My dad had pancreatic cancer," he told Tubridy. "It was so surreal at the time because my mum was sick."

"You kind of wait your whole life wondering when your parents are going to get sick, what’s going to happen to your parents. You think they are superheroes."
