Jedward plan their own Live Aid to raise money for coast guard who saved their lives

The Eurovision twins are meeting with Bob Geldof for help with planning


Eurovision stars Jedward are planning their own version of Live Aid – to raise money for the coast guard who rescued them.

The former X Factor singers had to be saved by helicopter in a daring late-night mission after being stranded at sea with their cousin.

Now John, 22, revealed they are set to meet up with Bob Geldof for help on arranging the charity gig.

“Firstly it is amazing that members of the coastguard do it all voluntarily so we want to help,” he said.

“We’ll meet Bob in two weeks’ time in England at Guilfest and of course he’s the man to ask how to do it because he did such an incredible job raising money for charity with Live Aid.”

And John told the Sun that he and Edward thought they were about to die earlier this week.

“We really thought we had died. We were in complete pitch dark,” he said.

“We went for a two-hour walk down the beach and found ourselves stuck. It took two days for us to stop shaking.”
