Tamzin Outhwaite is "devastated" after a thief stole a "unique and irreplaceable" coat which belonged to her late mother.
The former 'EastEnders' actress – whose mum Anna sadly passed away in 2018 – had packed a suitcase in her boot ready for a "creative project" on Friday (28.08.20), but her car alarm went off in the early hours and the case was gone.
In a lengthy series of tweets, she wrote: "So at 1am I was woken by my car alarm going off. I had left a large suitcase in the boot, packed full of clothes, shoes, accessories & jewellery ready for a very early start this morning.
"I was supposed to be doing a favour for a friend on their creative project & my case was full of carefully selected outfits for a full day on this project today.
"Yes I called the police, & they were helpful, but I keep waking up remembering what was in the case. I am devastated.
"Yes my favourite clothes & shoes, but my mum's favourite Jaeger coat that I have inherited. It was unique & irreplaceable.
"As soon as I realised the noise was MY car alarm I was out the door driving around looking for someone dragging a very heavy case but nothing. (sic)"
The 49-year-old star admitted she regrets leaving the case in her boot, although she felt she was "being well prepared".
She continued: "I know I should not have left it in the boot, even though it was locked but I thought I was being well prepared.
"Anyway. I'm gutted. If anyone sees a leopard print,beautiful jaeger coat in a 10 & a bunch of other clothes by @wyse_london @ScampandDude @marksandspencer @sweatybetty @Airandgrace trainers,some still with labels, please report it.thank you (sic)"
Tamzin later revealed she wasn't going to be doing the planned project after her ordeal.
She tweeted: "I'm not doing the project today.it can wait. I have hardly slept just remembering things I have lost...
"Weirdly, my mum would have shrugged it off because she was not materialistic but that coat. Means nothing to someone else.xx (sic)"
