Twink has been left heartbroken by the death of her beloved dog Teddy Bear.

The miniature Yorkshire Terrier was infamously stolen from her Knocklyon home in 2014 and recovered safely days later.

Panto queen Twink, whose real name is Adele King, said that she is devastated by her furry friend’s death and described him as her “soul mate.”

In an emotional post, she said: “All the days and nights I had mentally prepared myself for this... had been a waste of time. The end is too painful and too final [for it] to be of any use to you when the moment is actually there.

“My soul mate in my film, TV and theatres and constant loving companion tiny Yorkie... Teddy Bear, out of the blue was given a week to live. I was completely shocked and devastated at the news.

“The pet Dynamic duo stopped eating three days ago, and finally succumbed last Sunday.

“After our little chat ... out came his little paw to play a high five game of ours. I laughed out loud... then praised him again.”

Twink added that she was with Teddy until his final breath.

She continued: “Then noticed how frail he suddenly seemed.. I turned around to tell him I would be back in seconds... and noticed he had shifted himself too near the fire I lifted his tiny little head... And said, ‘Oh let me move you back a tad sweetheart.’

“I bent down to kiss him.. I told him I loved him more than he could ever know .... He looked up at me with those big brown pools of eyes... Raised his little play paw... like a goodbye. Gave me a little smile (one of his party pieces).

“And his tiny tiny little head just flopped gently back Into the cup of my hand.. And he was gone … literally... as the church bells across the road rang out 12.00. I thought to myself... leave it to Ted to put his own twist on his own fairy-tale life.
