X Factor twins John and Edward Grimes have admitted that they were forced to leave an elite Irish boarding school, after they faced 4 years of bullying hell.

The teenage twins say that pupils, particularly other boys, disliked them for being different and sticking out from the crowd.

John told The Sunday Mirror: “Everyone experiences tough times in their lives and we’re no different. I think a lot if people will be able to relate to what we went through.

“There were a lot of mean people around us at school. It could be verbal, mental or physical. I think it was because we stuck out a lot.

“We always wanted to do things that were different. It marked us out to bullies. People would say, ‘Why are you two doing that?’

“But we were just trying to live our dream. We always did things people never did.

“Guys were jealous of us because we were able to talk to all the pretty girls and they didn’t know what to say to them.

“Some girls weren’t that nice either, though.”

Edward said: “We were there for four years and eventually we changed schools when we were 12 because it got too bad.

“It was kind of hard because we didn’t know what was happening to us but we always knew there was nothing wrong with us.

“We knew we always had each other and we stuck to our core values to get through it. It helped that I had my brother there.”
