Jedward were forced to be apart yesterday (23.08.11) in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house - and received an electric shock if they got too close.
The Irish twins have entered the Channel 5 fly-on-the-wall series as one housemate, but were called into the diary room and told they had to become John and Edward Grimes and ordered to keep a distance of at least five yards between them.
Jedward were also forced to give up the identical outfits they've worn since entering the house last Thursday (18.08.11) and were instead given skin-tight bodysuits in different colours - pink for John and purple for Edward.
However, even though the boys - who claim they've never been apart for more than a day in their 19 years - were given electric shocks every time they got too close, they couldn't keep away from each other.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "John and Edward would find it hilarious to sneak up on each other and give each other electric shocks. Even though they both get shocked at the same time, they couldn't stay apart."
After their separation, the brothers were allowed to put on their matching outfits one again and their fellow housemates were given one minute to tell the pair apart.
