The stage and TV star (pictured), whose real name is Adele King, returned to her home in Knocklyon, south Dublin, at the weekend to find it had been hit by burglars.

She branded the culprits "scumbags" and "parasites" and appealed to anyone with information on the burglary to contact Rathfarnham Garda Station.

She said she was determined to see the thieves are caught, adding: "I will be like a dog with a bone."

Writing on her Facebook page, Twink said: "The sight that greeted me was beyond what the word 'shock' implies.

"The room was four feet deep in clothes, every drawer was pulled out."

She said "every birthday, Christmas, anniversary gift" she had ever received was gone.

"All my beloved mother and grandmother's jewellery, my wedding rings, my baby rings, the girls' precious baby bracelets, my old charm bracelets from the sixties.

"One garda said it was the worst destruction he'd ever seen in a break-in.

"The house was stripped bare of anything they could carry."
