Anthea Turner has said she’s been the victim of three thefts in two months after her car was broken into and a holdall was stolen from it last week.

It comes after the TV personality put out a social media plea for her bike to be returned to her back in August as it was taken from outside a church in Fulham.

The 60-year-old, who also had a phone taken recently, posted pictures of her taken belongings to Instagram.

Reflecting on the situation, she said: “There’s a latin phrase “omne trium perfectum” everything that comes in three is perfect. Well not ‘Perfect’ but maybe it ends my thieving bad luck?

“After years and years of theft free living in the spate of 2 months my beautiful locked Boardman Ladies bike was pinched from outside a church in Bishops Park Fulham, my iPhone from my bag in a swimwear shop on The Kings Road and last week the back screen of my car was smashed in and the thieves retrieved a holdall from the boot.”

Turner said she had not been “negligent” at any point and that the thefts had taken place while she was going about her “life”.

She detailed that she had gone with fiancé Mark Armstrong to meet ex-husband Grant Bovey’s daughters, Claudia and Amelia, only to return to find the car’s back window smashed and her things gone.

On the contents of the holdall, she explained: “There was nothing in the bag instantly saleable just personal effects which meant something to me especially the Mulberry bag and Filofax which I’d bought in the 90’s when I started earning a bit of money.”

She went on to describe the thefts as a “violation of [her] world”, adding that it was “emotionally disturbing”.

This year was due to see Turner tie the knot with Armstrong, however, they have been forced to postpone their nuptials because of the coronavirus.

It will be the third marriage for the former Blue Peter host who was married to Bovey from 2000 until 2015 and DJ Peter Powell from 1990 to 1998.
