Edele Claire Christina Edwina Lynch (born 15 December 1979) is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, dancer and actress. She is best known as the lead singer of Irish girl group B*Witched, of which her twin sister Keavy is also a member, their brother Shane is a member of boy band Boyzone.


B*Witched and Barbarellas[edit]

In 1997, Edele and her twin sister Keavy formed the girl group Butterfly Farm with their friend Sinéad O'Carroll; the trio began writing and recording together, but soon realised that there was "someone missing". Upon Keavy's suggestion, they asked Armaou to come for an audition and she played a tape recording of a song she had written; the other girls liked it and Lindsay became the fourth member of the group, who later changed their name to B*Witched.

After the split, Edele joined for the songwriting/production team Xenomania, she co-wrote "Some Kind of Miracle" for Girls Aloud's debut album Sound of the Underground, and "Buster", "Situation's Heavy" and "Twisted" for the Sugababes' third album Three. In 2006, Edele and Keavy created a duo group going by the name of Ms Lynch, until December 2009 when they were officially rebranded as "Barbarellas". Edele confirmed on Facebook in late 2012 that the Barbarellas project had come to an end before reuniting with B*Witched.

On 28 October 2013, Edele won Celebrity Apprentice Ireland,[2] beating journalist Amanda Brunke in the final and winning €25,000 for her chosen charity, Laura Lynn House.[3]

On 18 August 2014, Edele became the ninth housemate to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house.[4] Edele later finished 6th in Celebrity Big Brother 2014.
