She became a YouTube sensation earlier this year for her "Ah here leave it out" line during a street row and now Dublin granny Ann Grimes is joining her namesakes John and Edward in Jedward and The Magic Lamp at the Olympia Theatre.

A few months ago, Ann was featured in a video of an argument between four men on Dublin's Talbot Street in which she managed to get them to stop fighting with her repeated calls to "leave it out".

Little did she know her now famous catchphrase would bring her a worldwide audience with her voice now being incorporated into online videos with excerpts of fight scenes in Eastenders, Star Wars, and The Dark Knight. Ann has since become a YouTube sensation with over 300,000 hits.

Ann, from Dublin's Sherriff Street, shares the same surname as the famous twins and she's set to share the stage with Jedward in The Dublin Bus Jedward Panto - Jedward and the Magic Lamp which opens at The Olympia Theatre this Wednesday, December 19th and runs until January 6th. Tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide.

Ann will appear alongside Jedward, Linda Martin, Alan Porter and a hundred-strong cast.
