Love Island’s Eve Gale was mugged walking home from the gym on Monday, her twin sister Jess Gale has revealed.
The 23-year-old television personality, who appeared on the ITV2 dating series in 2020 alongside her sister, was on her own when her phone was snatched from her.
Jess explained the scary ordeal on Instagram, telling her followers: ‘Last night walking back from the gym alone Eve got mugged and they stole her phone. Been in Apple for ages today trying to get back into her accounts.
‘Just as she was about to buy a new one, police rang saying they’ve found it.’
She continued: ‘Guys who watched it happen chased this guy down and brought him to the police. So thankful for them.’
Eve has yet to publicly speak out on the incident.
The scary incident comes just days after fellow Love Island star Zara McDermott was left shaken over the weekend when four masked men tried to break into her car while she was locked inside.
The 25-year-old reality star had just returned to her vehicle after a shopping trip and loaded the boot with her bags, before getting in and locking the doors.
Zara revealed her horrifying ordeal in a series of videos posted on Instagram while urging her followers to always lock their car doors after them.
‘Within a few seconds of me putting my phone down and getting ready to go, I dropped my key on the floor, so I bend down to pick it up and I look up and there are four guys surrounding my car,’ Zara recalled.
‘Most of them had balaclavas on.’
‘It all happened so quickly but the guy on the passenger side, he had a hood up and a scarf, and was trying to open the door,’ she continued.
‘Then I looked back, and someone was tapping on my window trying to get my attention and stop me from moving.’
