Wee Nialler from One Direction is a fan (we can’t blame him), and he’s recently appeared on the likes of the Late Late.

Then there’s his recent UK TV debut – made earlier this year on BBC’s Live At The Apollo.

Yes, serious hat-tip to funnyman Al Porter, aka the youngest lad to ever headline his own show in Vicar Street.

That and his latest offering is completely hilarious.

He’s back in the Dublin city centre venue later this evening and tomorrow – before moving on to the likes of Drogheda, Wexford, and Kerry.

But it was a warm-up gig in Bray, Co Wicklow last night that has us dyin’. And in particular, we are flat-out delira to discover that Al does a killer Twink impression.

Delightfully calling the former panto queen a “mad bitch,” he goes on to describe how she had once lamented a break-in at her home.

“Remember when her gaff was robbed? Fucking Kim Kardashian eat your fucking heart out!” he utters to riotous laughter from the crowd at the Mermaid Centre.

“Twink came over to me and she said the best sentence I’ve ever heard – and this isn’t a joke – she said to me; ‘I’m just so upset, it’s an awful thing to happen – absolutely awful, dreadful, dreadful.

“‘I’m not materialistic but… my fucking diamonds!’

“What a sentence – ‘I’m not materialistic but my fucking diamonds'.

“Mad bitch.”

However, it was his follow-up tale of Twink at the panto that really has SHEmazing! HQ in stitches.

“I did the Olympia panto and I saw her in the audience and I said ‘big hello to Adele King, aka Twink, fair play to you,’” he begins.

“And she stands up uninvited and goes ‘Can I just say…’ and everyone’s like, ‘Mammy I’m scared.’

‘Can I just say,’ – and she’s doing the fucking claw… ‘Can I just say: Al Porter is a star and there hasn’t been a panto this good – and she’s addressing the audience like 2,000 people, no mic – ‘there hasn’t been a panto this good since I did panto in the Olympia'.

“Fucking love the balls of her. You know what I mean?”

Not only is Al now up for a Rising Star Ifta award tonight, but the 24-year-old Tallaght-native has also just filmed a comedy segment for the BBC alongside Jack Whitehall and Ricky Gervais.

Twink, real name Adele King has revealed her emotional distress at having to give up her south Dublin home due to financial strain.

The 64-year old former panto queen has revealed that she think it is inevitable that she will lose her family home. The house on Idrone Avenue in Knocklyon, Dublin is a Georgian home which she says she may have to leave in order to move into a more manageable property.

She told the Brendan O’Connor on his radio show: "Short of winning the lotto… I mean, don’t get used to me not being in the papers about it because I always will be.  It’s a cross around my neck."

She explained that the house was never actually hers, “you never own a big Georgian house like that, you’re the custodian of it.”

Despite that she certainly feels attached to the property and was overcome with emotion speaking about the prospect of giving it up.

“I put my life, soul, heart, money, earnings, everything into that house.  It was the home I bought my children up in, was married to David in," she revealed.

While she says that she is working hard to try and keep the house, the entertainer admits that it would be almost impossible to remain in her home.

"The banks are the banks, they’re owed money, they’re owed money.  That’s not their problem, that’s my problem," she told the radio presenter.

It seems that her start-up baking business just won’t be enough to allow her to remain custodian of the house.

She confessed she is “working all the hours God gave me” to keep herself out of debt, but she can’t envision herself earning enough to cover her costs.

“I can’t even talk about it – break my heart, break my heart."

The Mirror reports that the bank is seeking to repossess the home with papers filed with the courts showing that as of two years ago the bank was owed €244,000 at that time.

It's been eight years since a VERY angry Twink (Adele King) left a furious voicemail on her ex-husband David Agnew's phone, and the nation cringed in her honour as it was leaked online.

In Twink's own words, from her 2013 autobiography, "I told him a few home truths before concluding with the point that it was high time that he zipped up his mi**ey."

Yup, pretty much.

Now, the panto star's eldest daughter Chloe Agnew, 25, has spoken out about how the leak affected her and her sister Naomi, saying the whole thing was "awful."

Speaking to the John Murray show on RTÉ Radio One yesterday, the singer said, "Ah look, you know what these things happen and there’s nothing you can do about, but it it was an awful awful thing to happen… Just like anybody whose personal problems come out and are shared with the whole nation."

Chloe says her and Naomi struggled to cope when details of their parents' high-profile split made headlines. "It was very tough, obviously," she said. "Myself and Naomi were very young and I think the toll it took on us, trying to maintain a young teenager's lifestyle while having that splashed across the papers was very tough."

But the Celtic Woman performer said it's not something that bothers her these days. "What can you do? You have to just deal with it and get on with it… it's only ever made us stronger and now there's a little pact and a bond that we have that's unbreakable," she told John.

As for Twink, she has no regrets. "I can honestly say, with hand on heart, that if I had to make that phone call again I would – happily," she wrote in her book… which was accurately titled Twink Unzipped.

Just for old time's sake, here's that infamous voicemail again, very NSFW obviously!
