World renowned spirit medium Derek Acorah has told Twink, aka Adele King, her dog Teddy has a long life ahead of him and has almost put the trauma of his 'dog-napping' nightmare behind him.

The somewhat surreal exchange took place on RTE One's Today Show earlier today.

The 'Most Haunted' star was in the programme's Cork studios ahead of his Irish tour, which will see him in venues in Cork, Belfast and Derry in the coming days.

Twink spoke to clairvoyant Derek from the programme's Dublin studios.

Twink was left devastated after somebody stole Teddy from her Knocklyon home of September last year.

The mini Yorkshire Terrier was found several days later by gardai following a tip-off.

Adorable Teddy was found inside a house and reunited with his adoring owner Twink.

Speaking to the entertainer on the RTE programme, Derek told Twink that he "got 90pc trauma [from Teddy] when I first saw him".

"Since I've come back, it's just 1pc trauma. He's happy again."

"[There is] one percent left in him, feelings of that bad time. Now that one percent will also go now as you're going along," he assured Twink.

Derek then quizzed Adele about Teddy's eating habits when he first returned home, and whether he had shown any difficulty eating.

"Well absolutely but he wasn't wanting to do anything, or much of anything," Adele replied.

"But what I did notice Derek was he does have a memory retention. There's very strange things. There's a saw. When he hears the sound of a saw, I had a TV documentary on one night, a DIY thing, and he'd goes bananas at the sound of a saw or helicopters," she explained.

"There are strange sounds since he came back and they must be relevant to where he was kept, that he's terrified of and, to pardon the pun, make him go into a tailspin when he hears those sounds. So they must trigger some memories Derek," she added.

Derek told her Teddy needed to be in her company 24/7 - but overall he was a happy little dog.

He also told Twink he was going to live a long life.

"By the way I can say, I see him living a long life Adele. I see it very clearly."

As hosts Daithi O Se and Maura Derrane wrapped up the item, Adele thanked Derek and said she was "chuffed" to speak to him about little Teddy.
