Pop twins Jedward ambush Wayne Rooney

Tuesday July 27, 2010

Wayne Rooney didn't know what hit him. One minute the footballer was calmly making his way to dinner, the next he found himself surrounded by Jedward.

The Man Utd star was leaving the Mayfair Hotel in London with his agent Paul Stretford when pop twins John and Edward Grimes spotted him – and ran excitedly towards the England striker.

Twenty-four-year-old Wayne was happy to pose with the duo, whose debut album Planet Jedward hit the shelves on Monday.

It hasn't exactly been a hit with the music press, but it is likely to be snapped up in droves by their teenage fans.
