Comic Relief viewers went wild for 90s girl group B*witched when they performed at the Red Nose Day fundraiser on Friday.
The Irish pop group – twin sisters Edele, 43, and Keavy Lynch, 43, Lindsay Armaou, 44, and Sinéad O’Carroll, 49 – were among the musical acts to perform at this year’s televised charity event.
They performed with dancers dressed in green costumes with four-leaf clovers and Guinness beer outfits today, which was St. Patrick’s Day, the traditional date of death of Saint Patrick, Ireland’s main patron saint.
Girl group B*witched delighted fans when they appeared on screen, with some claiming they “screamed” and danced around their living room.
Others commented that they look as youthful as they did when they rose to fame in 1998, while other devotees commented on their talent for dancing in high heels.

One person wrote on Twitter, “Watching #ComicRelief and #bewitched performing, what kind of wizardry are they using because they haven’t aged at all and they just did an Irish jig in stilettos! I’ll fall over if I put on just one heeled shoe.’
Someone else posted: ‘Hewitched on Comic Relief! When I say I SHOUT!!! #RedNoseDay #ComicRelief.”
“I have reached a tragic climax. Doing the Bewitched dance on my own at home in front of the TV in my pajamas!” another viewer shared.
Another tweeted, “Living my best life for Bewitched, I’m not gonna lie.”
While another fan posted, “Bewitched, I’ve been so waiting for the “I fight like my daddy”. They contain it. Brilliant!’
‘I’m not sure #BeWitched used to sing that well! Brilliant,” shared another viewer.
B*Witched also left This Morning viewers stunned at their youthful appearance on Friday.

Viewers couldn’t believe the pop star sisters’ “timeless” looks and were excited to see them back on screens.
One fan of the show tweeted, “How do b*witched look better than they did 25 years ago!” with another addition: ‘B*Witched also looks f**king incredible. #this morning.’
During their time on the show, Alison said, “We’re joined by Edele, Keavy, Linsay and Sinead. You know them best – as we all know them – as B*witched.’
A clip of their iconic hit C’est La Vie was played, after which Dermot said, ‘Look. Seems like it was yesterday.’
“It feels like yesterday, but we look so young!” the pop stars insisted.
Alison admitted, “I just looked at my paper, the script, and it says ”25 years ago” that started this all.” I was like “are you kidding me?”

“You don’t even look 25!” I am serious. Serious.’
Further on, the TV presenter asked B*witched, “But what are the highlights? What have been your highlights?’
Edele responded: ‘The highlights of the past 25 years? I think it should be your own tour. Do our own tour and you build the stage set and you write the whole thing.’
The band also confessed that they believe they have been together for 25 years because “unlike other bands” they put together themselves, rather than being selected by a management team.
After chatting with Dermot and Alison, the group performed a rendition of C’est La Vie, much to the delight of the viewers.

The Irish group is also known for other hits, including Rollercoaster, To You I Belong, Blame It on the Weatherman and Champagne and Guinness.
B*witched have been friends since their teenage years and are planning to celebrate the anniversary with a tour to be announced soon.
In 2001, while the third album was in the works, the girls received a call from their manager telling them that their record label had dropped them.
A year later, with no record deal in sight, Sinead left the band and the group officially split a year later before reuniting in 2012 for ITV2 reality show The Big Reunion, and performing together ever since.
