Kelly Brook, 40, was seen today as she comes to terms with a burglary at her home
Kelly Brook has been left ‘terrified’ after her luxury London home was burgled last night, MailOnline can reveal.
The TV star is understood to have disturbed the intruder after returning home from presenting her Heart FM radio show.
Kelly, 40, was unhurt but is said to be extremely shaken.
The thief also fled with electrical items. The Metropolitan Police are investigating.
A neighbour of the former model told MailOnline today: ‘Kelly was burgled last night. Police spoke to me and wanted to know if I had any further information.’
A source added: ‘Kelly has been left really shaken up by the burglary.
‘Police were called between 7pm and 8pm on Tuesday but the thief had managed to escape before they arrived at the property.
‘They did get away with some electronic items and jewellery but it’s more the fear of someone being at her home which has upset Kelly.’
A source close to Kelly revealed today: ‘The police arrived between 7 and 9pm last night.
The star lives in a stunning London flat that is said to be worth £3m. Thieves got into the property between 7pm and 9pm and got away with the former model’s expensive jewellery
‘We think she may have returned home after her slot on Heart FM and disturbed the burglar while he was still in her house.
‘He managed to escape I am told with electronic items and some jewellery. Understandably she has been left terribly shocked by this.’
Kelly and co-host Jason King – JK – present a three hour show on Heart London every weekday between 4pm and 7pm.
She was pictured outside the radio studios before her show yesterday in a camel coat and knee-high boots.
Kelly, who’s in a relationship with French model and actor Jeremy Parisi, 33, also owns a £1 million farmhouse in Kent, where she’s become a keen gardener.
The former actress has reportedly spent 12 years renovating the property, while also keeping her flat in London for when she’s working in the city.
Talking about her Kent home in 2018, she said: ‘For me it was about stripping it back to its bare bones, and getting the landscaping right.

‘Anyone who’s owned a period property knows it’s a never-ending labour of love.
‘I wanted the house to look its age so I worked with an architect, stripping out the plaster to expose the frame of the house and the original beams.
‘But though it looks old, it’s super-efficient and has underfloor heating.’
Kelly, who is dating long-term partner Jeremy Parisi, began her presenting career aged 19 in January 1999, when she replaced Denise van Outen on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast alongside Johnny Vaughan.
She left the show in July 1999. In 2005, she hosted Celebrity Love Island for ITV.
She has also become a star in the US appearing in science fiction drama Smallville, NBC sitcom One Big Happy and horror movie Piranha 3D
It is not known if she will be able to broadcast the Heart FM show this evening.
