Michael McIntyre was the victim of a smash-and-grab robbery yesterday while waiting to pick his kids up from school.

The English comedian - who is due to play Dublin's 3Arena this Thursday, Friday and Saturday - was sitting in his car in Golders Green, north London, when two men on a moped stopped, smashed the windows with a hammer and stole his watch.

His wife Kitty said that he was "fine" and he and his children were uninjured, while police confirmed the news in a statement, which read: “The victim was stationary in his car when two males on a moped smashed the car windows with a hammer before stealing property."

No arrests have yet been made, while it'll be interesting to see whether McIntyre can work this unpleasant incident into his routine...
