Jedward have trousered the biggest annual pay cheque for an 'X Factor' act, making themselves £2.85 million last year.

The pair have managed to scoop together the record-breaking sum with a swathe of sponsorship deals and lucrative personal appearances.

The Grimes brothers' manager Louis Walsh has secured deals with the likes of Nintendo, Hyundai, Moneysupermarket and Fruit Shoot, each worth several hundred thousand pounds.

"The Jeds are making millions. Louis reckons Jedward have made more money in a year than any other ‘X Factor' act," said a source.

"They've done more adverts, endorsements and gigs than all the other contestants combined. In the past year their earnings topped £2.85 million.

John and Edward's prices for a three-track set start at around £10,000, while they reportedly charge £25,000 to play bar mitzvahs.

Meanwhile, it was revealed yesterday that 2009 ‘X Factor' winner Joe McElderry supported Jedward at a free concert last weekend, even though they finished six places behind him on the talent show. [The Sun]

Say what you like or dislike about Jedward, they are definitely having the last laugh.

Jedward have reportedly signed a £1 million deal to be on 'Celebrity Big Brother' this summer. “The lads can't believe their luck - a cool half a million each,” said a source. [The Sun]

Jesus! Can't see that being of any benefit to them! They're good in small doses but 24hr Jedward cannot be good for your health!
I wouldnt be surprised if fans just got sick of them after this.

Though I suppose if I was getting paid as well as them, I'd bank the cash for as long as possible, then just retire at 24, or whatever age they are!
