According to a report in the diary section of The Daily Telegraph, British label Burberry had been approached to sign John and Edward Grimes for a promotional campaign.

Sinitta, the former girlfriend of 'X Factor' judge Simon Cowell, told the Telegraph: "We are trying to get them to be the face of Burberry."

However Burberry, which currently has a deal with 'Harry Potter' actress Emma Watson, has told Brand Republic it has no intention of signing Jedward.

A Burberry spokesperson said: "We are not using or considering using [Jedward] in our campaign or any other projects."

The news follows Jedward's appearance in Grazia last week where they featured in a fashion shoot. Additionally the twins have had photo shoots with Esquire and I-D magazines.
