Entertainer Adele King, otherwise known as Twink, has said she is not pressing the "panic button" after a bid by Bank of Scotland to repossess her home.

Dublin County Registrar Rita Considine heard yesterday that Ms King had already been served with a civil bill seeking possession of Idrone House in Idrone Avenue, Knocklyon, Dublin 16, where she lives.

The house has a mortgage in the name of Ms King and her former partner, David Agnew.

In papers which the bank had already served against Adele King, it was stated in a grounding affidavit that as of August 2013 the bank was owed €244,000 including just over €11,600 arrears at that time.

Speaking to the Irish Independent last night, Ms King said that she is thinking of downsizing.

"We bought it as a family house and it was perfectly wonderful for David and myself and the girls, but you know it's the old story of the family are gone and mammy's left on her own with a very big home to keep.

"It might be the smartest thing I'd ever do in my life. We are handling it and it's all being handled and it's all being handled above board and it's all very friendly at the moment."

The court heard there had been difficulty serving David Agnew with the proceedings.

He was not in court nor was he legally represented and, since it was the first time that the legal proceedings were in court against him, Ms Considine adjourned the bank's application for further consideration by her court.
