Gordon Brown: 'Jedward are good at other things'

Friday November 20, 2009

Prime minister Gordon Brown has expressed his support for X Factor twins John and Edward after saying earlier this month that they were "not very good."

The British PM, a professed fan of the singing competition, said that he hopes the duo and all the show's other contestants "do well."

"I got into a bit of a problem because I said I didn't think they were very good at singing," he told ITV's This Morning. "But they are good at other things."

While Mr Brown admitted that he doesn't know who will be crowned champion of the popular programme, he said that he and his sons are cheering for Stacey Solomon, the only remaining female contestant.
