The house was broken into on Thursday morning, with thieves stealing a flat screen television and Reid's Vauxhall Zafira car.

Reid, 40, and her family were unaware they had been burgled until later in the day, when one of her three sons asked where the TV was.

She told the Daily Mail: "We found out we had been burgled when our six-year-old son came upstairs and said: 'Daddy, where's the TV?'

"They swept up a few valuable items and made a dash. Thankfully, they didn't take anything of great personal value, or the children's Christmas toys."

It appears the burglar entered the premises by forcing a front window. Property stolen included a television and the occupant's car.

Metropolitan Police spokesman

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said Lambeth Burglary Unit was investigating the break-in.

He added: "It appears the burglar entered the premises by forcing a front window. Property stolen included a television and the occupant's car."

Reid, who lives with her partner, Dominic Cotton, broke the news on her Twitter account, later adding a message of thanks for all the messages of support she had received.

She also asked followers to be on the look out for an "abandoned but well-loved silver Vauxhall Zafira in Lambeth".
