A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy from Dundalk was one of two youngsters from the town lucky enough to be chosen to appear on Jedward’s new TV show.

Football fan Luka Murphy always wanted to meet his favourite players from Manchester United and wrote to Jedward asking for their help.

Not long afterwards, Luka received a video message from the Grimes brothers, John and Edward, to say that his dream was about to come true.

Luka jetted off to Manchester with his dad, where he met the players in Manchester United players and walked onto Old Trafford as their team mascot alongside team captain Patrice Evra.

Luka even had a playful run in with soccer superstar Rio Ferdinand. Luka and his stint at Old Trafford is set to feature in ‘OMG! Jedward’s Dream Factory’.

The ten-part series sees Jedward making dreams come true for children from all over Ireland on their first ever Irish television show.

The show airs on Christmas Day at 11am on RTÉ Two and will also feature 16-year-old Lynsey Reilly from Dundalk who met her favourite girl band The Saturdays.
