PROCEEDINGS by KBC Bank against TV star Grainne Seoige and her ex-husband Stephen Cullinane over their former home in Co Wicklow have been adjourned generally.

The Up for the Match presenter shared the luxury home known as Rock Valley in Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow with her ex-husband Stephen Cullinane.

The pair separated in 2010 after eight years of marriage, and their plans to settle down in the house never flourished.

Earlier this year, KBC Bank issued proceedings against the couple and the matter was before the County Register at Wicklow Circuit Court this morning.

The details as to why the bank was seeking repossession of the property have never been revealed.

At the call-over of the court list this morning, legal representatives for KBC Bank asked that the matter against Ms Seoige (41) and Mr Cullinane be adjourned generally with liberty to re-enter the matter.

Wicklow County Registrar Mary Delahunty agreed that the matter be adjourned generally with liberty to re-enter the matter.

The Crime Call host bought the luxury home with her husband for more than €1 million in 2002.

Neither Ms Seoige or her former husband were in court for the brief hearing.

She was married to former TV3 colleague Mr Cullinane for eight years until their split in 2010.

The RTE star and former All Ireland Talent Show presenter has been in a relationship Leon Jordaan, a rugby coach from South Africa, since late 2011.

They met while Grainne was filming her Reality Bites documentary, Grainne’s Modern Life, at his rugby club in Navan.

Grainne previously said that Leon “understands” a west of Ireland girl like her.

“He gets me. What I love about him is his sense of kindness and fun.”

The Herald previously reported how the pair got engaged in 2013.

They kept the proposal a secret for a number of months to enjoy it by themselves, but threw an engagement bash in April 2014 at popular nightclub Lillies Bordello.
