Tamzin Outhwaite, who formerly played the role of Melanie Owen in EastEnders, has sent a furious message to the burglar who recently raided her home while she and her daughter Florence slept upstairs.
Taking to Twitter to vent her rage, she tweeted, “To the piece of s*** who broke in & burgled my house while my daughter & I slept & stole my mac/ iPad /2 mulberry hand bags/purses … iPod/& personal belongings… Khama does not have a time limit & neither does CCTV.
“Your Nike trainers tell a thousand messed up stories!!”(sic)
And Tamzin, who’s expecting her second baby with husband Tom Ellis – who played the role of Dr Oliver Cousins on EastEnders – later added, “don’t mess with pregnancy hormones!!”
However, fans frantically tweeted Tamzin, worried that she or Florence may have been harmed during the robbery, but she assured her followers that they’re all fine…
She tweeted, “We are fine. Just shaken up thankyou so much for your concern!”
And Tamzin, who underwent special training to star in military drama Red Cap, later added, “He is lucky I didn’t wake as my Army training still comes in use! And his feet didn’t look that big!!”
When the drama first aired in 2003, Tamzin told the media about the training she’d undergone to add authenticity to her portrayal of Sgt Jo McDonagh.
She said, “I had to do that basic Army training to know where Jo had come from.
“When I first got there, though, I started off holding a gun, looking at it and thinking: ‘This feels really alien to me. How many people has this killed?’
“By the end of the week I was disassembling, and assembling, a 9mm pistol with a blindfold on in ten seconds.
“It’s a way of life and I wanted to get into the way of thinking that the Army guys and girls have.
“They’re very, very proud of what they’re about and rightly so – they’re very dedicated.”
