Following a tip-off from a member of the public, gardai obtained a search warrant and recovered Teddy, a miniature Yorkshire Terrier, from a house in south Dublin yesterday.

Last night Twink said she is "so overjoyed" at Teddy Bear's return. She went public on Teddy Bear's disappearance at the weekend, in a teary interview.

The pantomime queen said she had been inundated with help from the public since.

"A male was arrested in relation to the theft of an animal on September 18," a garda spokesperson said. A house was searched in Tallaght and a 23-year-old was arrested. He was being detained last night in Rathfarnham Garda Station.
