Jedward have started filming the third series of their children’s television show, Jedward’s Big Adventure.
The series sees the twins visit various historical landmarks around the British Isles. John and Edward, 22, are teamed up with a celebrity guest and required to learn a number of facts about each landmark before leading a group of tourists on a tour. The team that communicates the most facts to the tourists wins. And the losing team faces a forfeit.
Previous series have seen Jedward learn about runes at an ancient burial tomb on Orkney, study the introduction of the Union Flag under James I at Greenwich and examine the dinosaur fossils discovered by Mary Anning in the early 1800s on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.
Filming has begun for the third series. This week, Jedward spent two days in the Warwickshire market town, Stratford-upon-Avon, famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare. They visited the timber house where the British playwright was born, as well as the Holy Trinity Church where he was baptised and, later, buried. The twins were even taken to the theatres where the Royal Shakespeare Company performs the works of Shakespeare and others.
Was it All’s well that ends well for John and Edward in Stratford-upon-Avon? Or a mere Comedy of errors? We’ll have to wait until the new year, when the series will be aired on the BBC’s CBBC channel, to find out!
This coming Sunday, Jedward will perform music from their three albums at the INEC in Killarney, Co. Kerry, before travelling to Australia in November where they will give concerts in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.
