The break-in happened at their home in Cheshire last night, and Christmas presents, a watch and rings are just a few of the items stolen.
The police said: “The couple discovered the break-in after they returned to the house at around 7.20pm on Tuesday night. The house had not been ransacked but had been given a pretty untidy going over and there were several items missing. We have no value on the missing items as yet but it was obviously an unpleasant thing to come home to and police have launched an investigation.”
“Thank you all for your lovely and supportive messages, means a lot,” Abbey tweeted this morning.
