Piers Morgan and wife Celia were burgled as they slept by thieves who invaded their

bedroom at a luxury French villa.

Celia, 44, hit out at the ‘depraved and despicable’ culprits who targeted their holiday

It is thought the thieves made off with money from her handbag as well as a handful of jewellery.

She penned: ‘I knew the second I walked into the sitting room that something was wrong…

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

‘But then I remembered something that made me feel sick: the up-turned handbag found in the

sitting room had originally been on a chair in our bedroom.

‘They must have crept in there and stood inches away from us while we slept.’

The thieves got away with a ring that Piers had gifted her on their fifth wedding anniversary as

She continued: ‘I felt a stomach-plummeting sense of violation at the actions of these depraved

and despicable inhuman beings.’

Celia said that the police later told her that the burglars had left just 15 minutes before

she woke up after hearing her snooze the alarm.

It comes after the Morgan family made a last-minute dash home from the villa in

St Tropez to avoid the UK’s new quarantine rules.

The Good Morning Britain presenter cut short his break to ensure he returned to the UK before

the government implemented a new two-week quarantine rule.

France was added to the UK’s quarantine list on Thursday in a savage blow to tens of

thousands of British holidaymakers, as ministers ordered travellers returning from the popular destination to isolate for 14 days.

The quarantine is set to come in at 4am on Saturday – and with an estimated British

500,000 holidaymakers in France, a weekend of chaos looms.
