Pop twins Jedward have admitted they hoped to keep their embarrassing sea rescue secret.

The Eurovision stars were rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter when they were close to drowning after a late-night walk with their cousins.

The former X Factor sensations were only saved after calling their mum who got the emergency services on the case.

But John admitted it has left them utterly embarrassed when the news broke last week.

“We didn’t want anybody finding out, that’s why we called our Mum and then she phoned the emergency services,” he said.

And John told 2FM that he was shocked by the scene that greeted him when the life guard came for them.

He said it was like “something out of a movie”. He added: “We were expecting to be rescued by boat, but were surprised when a giant helicopter came to save the day.”
