The Chase's Anne Hegerty scared off bag thieves with a foul-mouthed tirade

THE Chase’s Anne Hegerty thwarted a pair of thieves — and then terrified them with a foul-mouthed tirade.

They even threatened to report Anne, 62, to the police for swearing.

She spotted them trying to steal her shopping bags as she was unloading.

Anne recalled: “The car was parked around the corner, and I came back at one point to find this rather rough-looking couple trying to make off with my shop.

"I yelled, ‘F***ing put them down, f***ing give me them back. They’re not f***ing yours.’

"They didn’t recognise me but they didn’t actually expect that sort of language.”

They threatened to report her but Anne, who has flats in Manchester and Watford, went on: “I told them, ‘F***ing do it. F***ing tell them, I don’t f***ing care’ and they basically dropped the bags and ran.

“It was nice to channel that indignation and get my stuff back, especially as I know plenty of people who would have hidden around the corner quaking in fear, which is a bit pathetic when it’s a couple of crackheads.

"Frankly, I could take them.”
