Lizzie Cundy has described an attempted break-in she suffered last night.
The 55-year-old presenter was in the bath when she heard a ‘huge bang’ and ‘noise’ coming from downstairs.
Luckily, a farmer had already rang the police when he noticed someone ‘lurking around suspiciously’ near the Talk Radio star’s home.
Police turned up ‘in minutes’ and the two men drove off, but in their haste crashed and overturned their car.
Unfortunately, although Hampshire Police were ‘amazing’ according to Lizzie, the criminals ran away into the night before they could be caught.
Thanking the police for their quick response, Lizzie asked anyone who knows anything about the incident to contact authorities.

Taking to Instagram, the Our Shirley Valentine Summer star posted a photo of the crashed car, and said in full: ‘So this happened last night.
‘After a lovely dinner with a friend, I was taking a bath and heard a huge bang and noise downstairs. Someone sounded like they were trying to get in my house.
‘Luckily a passing farmer saw someone lurking around and thought it was suspicious and called the police immediately.
‘Thankfully the police came around in minutes to my home but the 2 men drove off into my fence with such speed they overturned their car as you can see from the photo above.

‘They then ran off into the night and the police couldn’t catch them. I just want to say a huge thank you to Hampshire police who came over so quickly and stayed with me. The police were amazing.
‘This is happening way to often especially in rural areas. We all need to look after each other. Thankfully someone did for me.
‘If anyone knows anything please contact Hampshire police. I’m felling very blessed today I wasn’t hurt or anyone else. Keep safe 🙏🏻.’
Lizzie was previously married to former Chelsea and Tottenham footballer Jason Cundy for 16 years before their 2010 split.
A trained actor, Lizzie appeared in two James Bond Films alongside Pierce Brosnan as well as TV shows such as Eastenders.
In August last year Lizzie’s dog Alfie was stolen from her in Belgravia, leaving her ‘in bits’.
She got a new dog for Christmas (as pictured above) but at the time expressed her deep sorrow at the events, as she said: ‘Dogs are part of the family. I do so much for dogs charities and it’s heartbreaking for him to be stolen and snatched away like this.
‘We’re all in bits and can’t sleep since Alfie has been taken.’
Lizzie continued to The Sun: ‘There is a £5,000 reward and Lady Gaga sends her love and prayers for Alfie’s return and we hope we will get Alfie back.’
