The Panto favourite said that she feels cursed and had reported the loss of the laptop, which has a Louis Vuitton cover, to the Gardai in Rathfarnham.

“I really think someone out there has a voodoo doll and is sticking pins in it for me,” Twink told The Irish Sun.

Twink revealed that she frets that people are becoming sick of her losing streak, but said that she too is also sick of her run of bad luck.

“It’s been one thing after enough and I’ve had enough but I believe in the goodness of human nature and that this driver, or someone who knows him, will rescue this situation.”

King misplaced the laptop in a taxi as she journeyed from a local shopping centre in Dublin to her home in Knocklyon.

The 64-year-old revealed that it is “heart-breaking” to lose her computer, especially following the traumatic kidnapping of her dog Teddy last year.

"It’s heart breaking to lose such a gift"

“I never spend money on myself. The Louis Vuitton laptop cover was part of an expensive set bought for me as a family present for my fiftieth birthday.

“It’s heart breaking to lose part of a set which was a wonderful gift from the people I love the most and the all the family pictures on my laptop.

The panto performer revealed that the loss of her laptop has hit extra hard as it contains the chapters of her book. The computer holds the key to many short stories which Twink has written in the hopes of publishing her first book.
