X Factor stars Jedward have revealed that their fame has spread across the world and they always try to reply to fan mail from their ‘dedicated’ following.

Speaking at the News of the World Children’s Champions Awards at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Wednesday night the duo claimed it is ‘comforting’ to see the support from fans.

John told whatsontv.co.uk: “We went through a massive stack of fan mail in the car and we have a Twitter, it’s called Planet Jedward, and we always Tweet all our fans back.”

Edward added: “Loads of people from China, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, we get fan mail from everywhere!”

A group of fans had followed the pair to the awards and were singing to them outside their hotel the night before.

John explained: “We had 25 of them last night singing Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby) our single.”

Edward added: “It was like Romeo and Juliet from our window!”
