Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews has revealed he was caught up in a horrific robbery where he had to hide himself in a vault to keep safe.
The father of one, who is married to Vogue Williams, confirmed robbers ransacked The Hour House in Marylebone where he was visiting to get his dream vintage watch – with Spencer fleeing downstairs as four raiders wielding “huge jackhammers” smashed through the displays on the floor above.
It’s reported that all four of the offenders got away before police arrived.
Taking to his Instagram story, Spencer revealed: “I just had to hide in a vault downstairs in a watch shop while it was smashed to pieces by armed robbers.
“Well, maybe not armed but they had huge jackhammers.
"I was picking up a vintage piece I've been waiting ages for when they drove a scooter through the glass and started battering the shop with huge hammers wearing helmets.
"We were in the back of the shop so we sprinted downstairs and hid in the vault until the noise passed. When we came upstairs the watches were all gone."
In a bizarre twist, Spencer revealed that the dream watch he’d been waiting for had not been taken by robbers – and was the only one left amid the rubble and glass on the floor.
"We were looking around and I was thinking ‘f**king hell, the thing I've been waiting for has been nicked and I'm going to have to go get another one.'
"Then low and behold amongst all the rubble there's one watch in the entire shop and it's mine. If that's not luck I don't know what is."
A Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline: "Police are working at the scene of a smash and a grab at a store in Duke Street, Westminster. Officers were called at 10.32am.
"A number of males armed with weapons are reported to have driven to the premises on mopeds and smashed a window before stealing goods and fleeing.
“Officers attended, including specialist firearms colleagues. A man aged in his 30s has been treated for an eye injury sustained after the shop window was smashed.
“At this stage there have been no arrests. Enquiries continue. Anyone who has information that could assist police is asked to call 101 ref CAD 2222/28 May.”
