Jedward installed as joint second favourite for Eurovision

Jedward have already been installed as joint second favourites to win this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The effervescent duo were announced recently as Ireland's representatives for a second year in a row.

They'll perform their new track 'Waterline' as they attempt to navigate their way through the semi-finals in search of a spot at the grand final - but bookmaker William Hill have already placed them as joint second favourites to win the whole competition.

William Hill give the pair odds of 8/1 - not far off from overall favourites Denmark, who are priced at 7/1. The UK meanwhile remain a long shot with odds of 25/1.

The bookmaker's spokesman Joe Crilly said: "Jedward came close last year, eventually finishing a respectable eighth and with another year under their belts, could well do even better in Azerbaijan."
