Jedward Show Gemma Collins A Good Time While The Diva Was In Dublin

The Only Way Is Essex’ star Gemma Collins visited Dublin over the weekend to record a guest spot in RTE’s new Saturday night show, ‘Ask Me Anything’, hosted by Angela Scanlon. The GC wanted to see the sights, so who better to call on than the two and only John and Edward Grimes – Jedward!

Commenting a few weeks ago on a livestream hosted by Jedward on their TikTok account, Gemma mentioned that she would be visiting Dublin on 30 October, and would they be interested in meeting up. Always ones for adventure, John and Edward said they would, and on Saturday they paid a visit to The GC’s suite at Dublin’s prestigious Merrion Hotel, where they chatted, and helped her prepare for her appearance.

After the show they took her to a pub to try a Guinness, and then the next day travelled around the city, looking at many of the sights, including the world famous Ha’penny Bridge. They also took a ride in a horse and carriage, where they entertained passers by with a rousing rendition of ‘Ireland’s Call’.

Considering Jedward’s intimate knowledge of their home town Dublin, as well as the rest of the country, it’s no wonder they were recently asked to work with Tourism Ireland. The pair visited County Clare, where they showcased The Burren the stunning Cliffs Of Moher, as well as County Wicklow, featuring Powerscourt Waterfall, Powerscourt House and Gardens, and the beautiful Glendalough.

You can catch up with Jedward and Gemma’s adventures on their respective Instagram (@GemmaCollins, @jepicpics) and TikTok.
