There was confusion in the Circuit Civil Court as to whether or not Twink's debt-ridden home had been publicly advertised for sale.

Barrister Shaula Connaughton-Deeny, for Start Mortgages, said a search online by her instructing solicitors, Ivor Fitzpatrick & Co, had not shown the property being advertised for sale other than what she had read in a newspaper interview.

Solicitor Mark Doyle, for Adele Condron-King, aka Twink, said that according to a property agent, "there is a strong interest" in the sale of Idrone House, the property Ms Condron-King owns with estranged husband David Agnew.

Mr Doyle said Ms Condron-King was looking for an adjournment to allow the sale of the property.

The bank issued possession proceedings against Ms Condron-King and Mr Agnew over the house at Idrone Avenue, Knocklyon, Dublin, claiming it was owed about €250,000 including €18,000 arrears.

Judge Jacqueline Linnane said that from what she had read in Mr Doyle's sworn statement, a sale was going to take place and she was satisfied the matter was being actively dealt with.

Judge Linnane adjourned the proceedings to a date next year to facilitate the sale of the property.

Writing on Facebook this week, Twink said it had been "one of the blackest weeks in this little family's life... with the end of the road for our beloved family home ... that I really built from a ruined shell".
