Jedward fans have been caught off guard after receiving surprise messages from the Irish singing duo on Twitter.

The twins, who rose to fame on The X Factor in 2009, have been sending their followers personalised direct messages on social media, for no apparent reason.

“You JEPIC legend rock the week,” the pair wrote to political commentator Owen Jones.

“Cool style Edie loads of good vibes to u,” they said to another.

Reactions from fans have been a mixture of bafflement and delight, with one follower writing: “The slow end of the world has been largely grand for me so far but not getting a DM from Jedward is really screwing with my head.”

“Jedward have slid into my DMs and I’m living for it,” said another fan. “Most encouragement I’ve had for months.”

Those who haven’t been lucky enough to get a DM from the singers are not happy.

“Feel like pure s*** just want jedward to dm me,” wrote one person.

Jedward are currently in lockdown in Los Angeles with American Pie star Tara Reid, who they met on Big Brother in 2017.

While in the US, they have been joining Black Lives Matter protests.
