Local Kilkenny youngsters James Campden and Clíodhna Donnelly were some of the lucky children whose dreams came true all thanks to Jedward. The famous twins picked the two from hundreds of children and they got to spend a magical day as some of their ‘dreamers’.
This Christmas on RTÉ Two, Jedward will once again make dreams come true for children from all over Ireland on their IFTA nominated Irish television show - ‘OMG! Jedward’s Dream Factory’. The young people’s entertainment programme will be broadcast as a ten part series on RTÉ Two from Christmas Day. The show will air every day (apart from New Year’s Eve) until Friday 4th January 2013.
In the second episode we meet James Campden, who is fascinated with animals and wrote to Jedward asking to be a farmer. With help from Jedward, he got to spend the day on James Murphy’s farm in Kilkenny where he helped look after the sheep, foals and cows as well as helping to bale the hay. Back in the Dream Factory, Jedward told James he looked more like a rocker than a farmer and they did their best rock star impressions!
In episode three Clíodhna Donnelly asked Jedward if she could work in Disneyland for the day. Clíodhna was whisked away to Disneyland Paris and got an exclusive inside view of all the special effects and how they worked. While there, she visited the fantastic costume department and later took part in the Disney Dreams parade on the Lion King Float!
‘OMG! Jedward’s Dream Factory’ features boys and girls of all ages and from all corners of the country who wrote to Jedward asking for help in achieving their dreams. Viewers will follow each child on their journey to fulfil a variety of dreams which include everything from going behind the scenes of hit TV show Mrs Brown’s Boys, joining the Riverdance Troupe, to training with the Munster rugby team and starring in the Beano!
