Identical twins from Gaywood were able to mingle with the stars when they appeared on the anniversary edition of TFI Friday last weekend.

Jade and Jae Wicks originally appeared on the show during its 90s heyday in the baby left baby right game.

During the game, a baby would be placed on a cushion and the audience and guests would have to guess which way they would fall.

Presenter Chris Evans asked the 17-year-old girls to recreate the game during last week’s live show on Channel 4.

Jade and Jae are now both appropriately studying child care at the College of West Anglia.

Their proud mum Kelly Alloway, who was in the famous bar during the show, said: “They absolutely loved their appearance.

“We didn’t know they were going to be appearing live on the show. It was amazing to be there.”

The girls made their first appearance on TFI Friday in 1998 when they were just seven months old.

They were sat on a floral cushion and both fell to the right during that appearance.

Jade and Jae were invited to take part while on the books of a modelling agency.

They also took part in a mini-series called Pure Wickedness with Kevin Whately.

Two weeks ago, Miss Alloway received a Facebook message from the assistant producer of the show to see if she was the mother of Jade and Jae.

She said: “We were told they were going through old clips and wondered if we would like to go back for the anniversary show.

“Chris Evans went in to introduce himself while they were in make-up.

“He was really nice to them and the whole crew made them feel comfortable.

“We initially thought the game was going to be pre-recorded but, two hours before, we were told it was going to be live.” When they recreated the game, the girls fell to the right.

While in the bar Miss Alloway was passed drinks by Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor.

She also rubbed shoulders with Alex Jones from the One Show, along with Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Kirsty Allsopp and singer Rita Ora. DJ Nick Grimshaw spoke to the girls.
