Jedward to become new faces of Kellogg’s Coco Pops – Tabloid Hell

Coco The Monkey bows out as duo sign '£180,000 deal'

Jedward are to become the new faces of Kellogg’s Coco Pops.

The X Factor losers – real names John and Edward Grimes – have signed a deal worth around £180,000 to replace current cartoon mascot Coco The Monkey, reports the News Of The World.

Speaking to the red top, John suggested the move will ensure children are “begging their parents” to buy them a box of the breakfast cereal.

“When you walk into the shop all you will see is our faces,” he warned. “That’s going to be cool.”

Jedward have also apparently signed up to front a new Saturday morning programme on CBBC, and are gearing up to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest next month.
