Twink on how she became pregnant with second daughter during holiday to Tunisia

Legendary comedian and TV icon Twink has told how she became pregnant with her second daughter Naomi during her first holiday to Tunisia with former husband David Agnew.

The lovable TV star recently returned to the north African country with Katherine Lynch for a new TV show and she joked that it rained a lot during her last trip.

She told the Irish Sunday Mirror: “I joked on camera – I am sure they will leave it in – and I said, ‘I was in Tunisia 27 years ago with David and Chloe and I came back with another child.

“I got pregnant in Tunisia. I am always telling her that. Naomi was conceived in Tunisia. I laughed in the camera and I said, ‘Well it rained a lot’ which it did.

“I came back pregnant with Naomi so I have a nice memory of Tunisia.”

Twink, whose real name is Adele King, is glad the show High Road, Low Road was in the can before global travel restrictions were enforced due to the coronavirus pandemic.

She said that her daughters Chloe and Naomi have been worried about her health due to an underlying condition she has carried since she was a child.

She explained: “I have the health of a pig, I have disgusting good health. The only thing that bothers me is my one underlying condition which is asthma.

“So at times like this, my girls absolutely freak when I leave the house. Even when I go in the car or bring the dogs out, they go berserk and say, ‘Please don’t go out.’ Other than that I feel very good.”

As well as her show hitting screens on Thursday night, it is also a big week for her as she celebrates her 69th birthday.

However, ageing is not something that bothers her because she has totally embraced her life.

Twink said: “As far I am concerned, it has been two minutes since I was standing on stage in a white hot pants with my 21st birthday cake being brought out on stage alongside a massive big teddy bear.

“The boss of The Stardust in Las Vegas and the whole cast and crew sang happy birthday to me and it feels like it could have been yesterday that I was 20’s

“I will be turning 69 and I keep thinking, ‘Jesus, Mary and Joseph, how did that happen?

“Thank God that I am healthy and happy and, so far, I haven’t felt the years being a burden. I have kept very fit all my life, I have been a sportswoman and I have worked out in gyms.

“It is my last year to say that I am 60 something and I can’t even have a bloody bash.”

Following a lifetime in showbiz, it is no surprise that she is constantly stopped on the street and in supermarkets by adoring fans.

Twink went on: “I went to The Square in Tallaght and I was getting some food in Dunnes Stores Foodhall for Naomi because she was cooking us a nice dinner. She is an extraordinary chef, she is gifted with food. “She says that she learned everything from me, which she did, and she is somebody who can turn anything into something. I was going from counter to counter and I rang her an hour later to say that I was leaving. She said, ‘You are only leaving now?’

“I told her that I couldn’t get from one aisle to the next. The fishmonger behind the counter shouted when I was halfway across the shop, ‘How’ya Twink, when is your show on with Katherine?’

“At the checkout, they were saying they were dying to see the show after they saw the ad.

“Everyone wants to know if I got the high road or the low road and they all think that they are the only ones stopping you.”

Twink met her travel partner Katherine Lynch at a Christmas party back in 2018 and the pair hit it off instantly.

After agreeing to work together on a new project, it was almost fate when the production company phoned up and asked if they would sign up to High Road, Low Road.

Twink said: “We met at a party last Christmas and we said, ‘This is ridiculous, we should have worked together on something by now’.

“We looked across the water to the UK and America and all of the female comedians there collaborate and do gigs with each other. We don’t have a culture of doing that here and we don’t have a good comedy department in our TV stations that can divide something like that.

“We went on after deciding that we would do something together and Christmas had hardly gone and Greening Productions asked us to do High Road, Low Road. We thought it was a very ominous sign, it was like they were reading our minds.”

Twink said that one thing she noticed during the trip to Tunisia was the locals calling out for more Irish tourists.

They told her that Irish people stopped travelling there following a terror attack at the Imperial Marhaba Hotel at Port El Kantaoui in Sousse back in June 2015 which claimed the lives of three Irish people.

She explained: “The one thing that the Tunisians kept saying to us was, ‘We miss the Irish. No Irish people come here anymore and we miss them’

“Irish people stopped holidaying there after that dreadful shooting on the beach. That incident flattened the market and killed tourism from Ireland.

“They will tell you they get tourists but all they get are Germans and very wealthy Russians. That is their tourist industry.

“We hoped that us having the craic over there would help the travel industry because it is cheap as chips and sunny, so it is a lovely holiday.

“But will anything promote tourism now, that is the question?”
