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.”Anne, known as The Governess on The Chase, spotted a couple trying to make off with her shopping bags[/caption] She said ‘I know plenty of people who would have hidden – frankly, I could take them’[/caption]

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.”
