Delay hits Twink's agony aunt TV show

TROUBLED TV viewers hoping to 'Give Adele a Bell' will have to wait until the New Year.

TV3 announced a new advice show with outspoken panto queen Adele King -- aka Twink -- with much fanfare two months ago,but it seems the plan is on the backburner.

The Herald can reveal the programme, provisionally titled 'Give Adele A Bell' won't be screened until early next year as details are still being devised.

A spokeswoman confirmed that director of programming Ben Frow "has his plan done for it" but that it won't appear on our TV screens until 2012.

And she added how she expected that Twink's programme could be filmed in TV3's new €4m 500sqm studio, which will be situated in an adjacent building at its Ballymount base.

Mr Frow approached Twink about fronting her own advice show after her she won Celebrity Head Chef last August.
