X Factor twins John and Edward have said they plan to move back to their family home in Ireland in spite of their new-found fame.

The pair – who were eliminated from the series last week, are currently living in West London, but have said they plan to head home as soon as they have fulfilled their commitments to the show.

“We’re going back to Ireland, definitely,” Edward said. “We won’t stay in London. We’ll be moving back to our parents.

“We’ve bought so many clothes, though. I don’t know how we’ll get all our stuff back to Ireland.”

And the pair – who appeared on Ireland’s Late Late Toy Show on Friday – added that their new-found stardom won’t stop them from finishing their education.

“We want to go back to school and finish our exams,” John said. “They are in June. School told us we can go back to finish whenever we want.”

The five remaining singers in the competition – Lloyd, Danyl, Stacey, Joe and Olly – will each perform two songs on Saturday’s show. One of their songs will be an Elton John classic and the other will be a Take That hit.

Lloyd, the youngest remaining performer, is the bookies’ favourite to be eliminated this weekend. And following Olly’s appearance in the bottom two last weekend, Joe has replaced him as favourite to be crowned series champion.
