Piers Morgan and wife Celia burgled in French villa while they slept just inches away

PIERS Morgan and wife Celia were burgled as they slept while holidaying in a French villa, the couple have said.

The incident happened early in the morning on Thursday – the day the couple were due to leave the south of France and return to the UK.

Writing in the Telegraph, Celia said: “I knew the second I walked into the sitting room that something was wrong.

"It was 6.15am on Thursday, and the last day of our holiday in the South of France.

"The previous night had been spent getting our rented house ready for ‘check-out’ – but the place was a mess.

"My handbag was upside-down on the sofa, the box I keep my jewellery in lying empty beside it."

French police later told the couple that the intruder had been in the home only 15 minutes earlier.
