Charlene McKenna has hailed “Mick and your magic metal detector” after her lost wedding ring was found on a beach by a stranger. 

The Irish actress was “left weeping with joy” after the astonishing find on the West Cork beach.

Charlene took to Instagram on Wednesday to tell her followers that she had lost her wedding ring while filming on Tralispean beach.

The 37-year-old, who was shooting scenes for a film based on Graham Norton’s book Holding, wrote: “Lovely people of West Cork I lost my wedding ring while filming on Tralispean beach yesterday in #Skibareen. I am absolutely gutted.”

“If anyone sees a little plain gold wedding band please contact me here… our things were back near the wall so we don’t think the tide could take it.”

Amazingly, within hours, Charlene revealed that a kind stranger with a “magic metal detector” managed to find her missing ring.

Sharing a photo of the ring back on her left hand, the Monaghan native wrote on Instagram: “WE FOUND IT!!!! Thank you MICK and your magic metal detector. And St. Anthony.

“Weeping with joy and might need a stiff drink!!! Thank you to everyone for your kind hopeful messages and your positivity.

“And to all the people on the beach who went blind looking at sand and rocks with me,” she added.
