Celebrating 60 years on stage and screen; singer, actor, entertainer, master baker, cake decorator and ALL-ROUND ICON, Twink, returns to our tellies this summer with a very special programme.
In the relaxed surroundings of her plush white shaker-style kitchen, Twink takes the viewer on a magical and musical trip down memory lane, whilst decorating a cake for a very special guest who’s revealed at the end of the show for a chat – The king of swing – Paddy Cole.
Twink trawls the archive for her best bits in this entertaining riot, as we see her singing and dancing down through the years and into Irish hearts. From where it all began as a Eurovision hopeful with Maxi Dick and Twink to the hilarious capers of sarky cleaning oul wans Bernie and Rose Violet, which will reunite the original characters played by Twink and Jonathan Ryan for the first time in years – you will hum along and laugh out loud!
The show will feature clips from every decade and include Twink performing with a host of Irish and international artists such as Dermot Morgan, Mike Murphy, Fran Dempsey, Larry Gogan, Gay Byrne, Johnny Logan, Brendan Grace and the legendary Perry Como.
And not forgetting the pandimonium of the panto as we see Twink – the sparkliest, fairy godmother of them all, ‘do her thing’ in festive seasons past.
All that with plenty of behind the scenes gossip and chat. Twink has hundreds of hours of archive and lots tales to tell. You will no doubt be entertained!
