Twink's ex knocks reconciliation rumour on head with new VBF

TWINK's ex-husband has a new friend in his life, and one thing is for certain -- he has a type.

David Agnew has been spotted holding hands with another blonde, apparently putting an end to rumours that he and his panto star ex were on the brink of a reconciliation.

Speculation was rife that Agnew and Twink, real name Adele King (59), were set to reunite after he recently began spending more time at their family mansion Idrone House, in Knocklyon, Dublin.

But these latest pictures show that he has a new friend in his life.

The couple, however, looked glum as they strolled past the Shelbourne Hotel at the weekend -- but put on a strong front by tightly holding each other's hands.

Agnew and Twink prompted speculation of a reunion after he was spotted visiting his former South Dublin home in recent months, and the couple also declared a public truce late last year.

While the rumour mill was in overdrive with news of a reunion, the pair were said to be mending relations for the sake of their two daughters, Chloe (21) and Naomi (16).

Agnew split acrimoniously from Twink six years ago, when he began seeing Ruth Hickey, another blonde.

The couple moved in together and had a baby boy named Jesse (4), the news of which prompted the infamous "Zip up your m**key" answerphone rant from Twink, which scored more than 150,000 hits on YouTube.

Hickey is now expecting her second child with her boyfriend Brian Allen, CEO of St Joseph's Centre For The Visually Impaired in Drumcondra.

The couple has been together since last year, and live together in Kells, Co Meath.

Both are said to be thrilled with the news that they are set to become parents.
