The incident comes just weeks after fellow former Islanders Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury were the victims of a burglary at their Manchester home.

£800,000 of the couple’s belongings were stolen while they were at a beauty launch event in London for Molly-Mae.

They apparently vowed to ‘never return’ to the flat and have now moved and hired 24/7 security for added protection.
