Masked raider breaks into Katherine Ryan's home

Boyfriend fights him off as he grabs laptop

Katherine Ryan has revealed a masked man broke into her home last night.

She took to social media to tell how her boyfriend fought off the intruder as he tried to steal a laptop containing the scripts for a Netflix series. 

The comic showed the computer splattered in blood and said: ‘This is why I love Bobby K because he got in a fight and wrestled back my Netflix series and scripts.’

She also shared a photo of a ring that was taken in case it shows up at a pawn shop

Ryan is writing a series called The Duchess in which she plays a ‘fashionably disruptive single mum’ whose daughter, Olive, is the love of her life and who is debating whether to have a second child.

She told the Radio Times last month: ‘"The Duchess is super authentic I think to my personality, to my stage persona, because it’s a disruptive mum who’s a bad person but a good mum. She’s fashionable, she loves being a mother she’s not sad about it — it’s me, yes. The rest is fiction, but it is a heightened version of me’

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
