Pop twins Jedward have been applauding Boy George and “super mom” Vogue Williams in a series of snaps taken backstage in the 3Arena where they are filming a brand new Irish entertainment show. 

The Lucan lads have been sharing photos of the Culture Club legend and the Irish model as they joined a star-studded judging panel for The Big Deal.

The singers, whose real names are John and Edwards Grimes, are appearing alongside Deirdre O’Kane, JLS star Aston Merrygold, singer Lyra and Boy George.

In one picture the twins pose with host Vogue and fellow judge George that they captioned: “Having a blast filming with @boygeorgeofficial Culture Club has two new JEPIC members! Proud of @voguewilliams she is a super mom and a super host rocking the big deal show!”

“The amount of talent and JEPIC energy is incredible. Having so much laughs and good times with @thisislyra @deirdreokane123 @astonmerrygold,” they added.

Yesterday the twins wished Boy George a happy birthday in a picture posted by Claudine Keane who paid tribute to the star on 60th milestone.

The model took to Instagram to share a photo with the Culture Club singer holding a birthday cake beside her footballer husband Robbie.

The trio celebrated Boy George’s milestone birthday at The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin.

She captioned the post: “Happy 60th Birthday @boygeorgeofficial so lovely to have you in Dublin to celebrate.”

Jedward commented under Claudine’s photo, writing: “Love the friendship you all have it’s ICONIC happy happy bday.”

The Big Deal launches in August, and is described as a mixture of ‘Got Talent’ and ‘Deal Or No Deal’.

A variety of acts, from musicians and magicians to comedians, dancers and acrobats will perform before being offered a deal.

The show will have an audience of up to 50 people who are separated into family/household pods and will have to wear face masks.

A spokesperson said: “We’re all looking for the same thing with this show, which is to create a global smash-hit format, every bit as special and big and noisy as The Masked Singer or The Masked Dancer, all of those hit formats we have at the moment.

“We want The Big Deal to be the next one.”
