BABY YOU'RE A STAR; Pal's twins welcome Sinead back home.

Byline: STEPHANIE BUSARI

FAME Academy star Sinead Quinn cradled her best friend's twin girls as she received a hero's welcome in her home town.

The 22-year-old, from Irvinestown, Co Fermanagh, smiled as she posed with little Timara and Katie - born to her pal Jean Brosnan while she was in the Academy house for 10 weeks. More than 3,000 people turned out to celebrate Sinead's success on the BBC talent show.

Fireworks were let off as the town rolled out a red carpet.

Sinead and her family arrived in style in three white limos - with fellow Academy contestant Malachi in tow.

Wearing a sexy black halterneck that showed off her trim figure, the town's golden girl walked the length of the street party shaking hands and signing autographs.

Then she got on stage and introduced Malachi to the crowd saying: "I'm sure you all know this chap. I call him Mr Lover, Lover."

Malachi then joined her and the pair linked arms as they sang The Pogues' Fairytale of New York.

Earlier as Academy runner-up Sinead arrived back in Northern Ireland, she said she was "overwhelmed" by the public support and was looking forward to the party in her honour.
