Jedward, who rose to fame on The X Factor in 2009, shared a thread of tweets about Simon Cowell, 61, and their version of events about their time in the music industry. They went on to urge the music boss not to be a “back stabber” and re-hire Piers Morgan, 56, for Britain’s Got Talent again.
The 29-year-old pop duo, comprised of twin brothers John and Edward, posted a picture of X Factor winners Little Mix, who have been slammed by Piers in the past.
Jedard commented: “Simon is considering Piers Morgan for judge on BGT after the s**t he said about Little Mix over this iconic photo!
“Have some respect for the girls you judgemental misogynistic farts!”
They went on to say: “Simon and BGT don’t be backstabbers hiring Piers Morgan. You would have no reputation without Little Mix and previous acts!
“Still friends with a person who degraded young women in a hate campaign against them?
“Years may go by but fans don’t forget!”
Piers had previously accused Little Mix of using sex to sell records after they posed naked for their single Strip.
He ranted at the time: “They’re stripping off to sell albums, that’s what it’s about.
“If men stripped off like that we’d be arrested but women do it and it’s ’empowering’.”
The former Good Morning Britain host later hit out at the girl group for laughing as Jack Whitehall “fat-shamed” him at the Brit Awards in 2019.
Earlier this month, Simon’s friend Sinitta said she asked him if Piers was going back to Britain’s Got Talent as a judge after the pair were seen walking together.
She told Entertainment Daily: “I saw the pictures of him walking with Piers and I did speak to him just before he went back to America.

“I said, ‘Oh, are you getting Piers to do BGT?’ And he said, ‘You’ll see darling, we’ll talk about it.’ He was being a bit secretive.”
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Simon, Piers, ITV and Britain’s Got Talent for comment.
Piers was an original judge on the ITV talent show alongside Simon and veteran judge Amanda Holden.
He judged America’s Got Talent from 2006 to 2011 and Britain’s Got Talent from 2007 to 2010.
The father-of-four quit both shows to focus on his CNN TV show in the US called Piers Morgan Live.
Piers was asked if he’d return to Britain’s Got Talent on Twitter in 2019.
He replied: “Sadly, @SimonCowell can’t afford me any more.”
The current judges are; Simon, Amanda, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
The show will not be going ahead this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
