Strictly’s Saffron Barker reveals home was burgled while family slept in terrifying ordeal

Strictly Come Dancing star Saffron Barker has revealed that her family home was burgled by thieves while they slept in a terrifying ordeal.

The YouTube star, who is currently partnered with AJ Pritchard on the BBC dancing competition, shared the news in a video, saying her family had woken to discover their cars had been stolen.

Even more terrifying is that the thieves made their way into the family home during the night.

The 19-year-old revealed she had taken down a video detailing the robbery because a police investigation is ongoing.

Saffron told fans: “I just want to give you a little update because I uploaded a vlog a couple of days ago and I spoke about our house getting burgled, and I did actually take the vlog down because I kind of thought maybe it's a bit too early because the police are still investigating it and stuff.

"But the reason I'm mentioning this is because people who did see the vlog, I've had so many people so worried and concerned and I just want to say thank you so much.

"Me and my family we're totally fine and that's what's most important."

Saffron then shared a clip of the morning she learned of the burglary, telling viewers: “It's been a very stressful morning.

"My dad woke up this morning like he usually would, went to go outside and go to work and realised that all our cars were gone.

"So basically our cars have been stolen, we got broken into last night and stuff inside our house was taken, like handbags and shoes as well.

"I was so upset this morning and obviously still am, but luckily we're all safe and that's what's most important and this stuff can be replaced, but it is horrible knowing that someone's come into your house while you're sleeping."

The social media star also revealed that her family usually has an alarm for their home, but they unfortunately hadn’t put it on on the night they were burgled.

Saffron added that her little brother, Jed, had seen someone come into his room in the middle of the night, saying: “The worst part is, we know exactly what time it happened last night because Jed heard somebody in his room at 3am and just thought it was us, and he said he saw flashing lights and stuff but was half asleep so he genuinely thought it was just us.

"It's scary because if someone came into my room I'd be absolutely terrified and just the thought of knowing someone has been in your room is really, really scary, but luckily Jed's okay and that's what we're focusing on."

Saffron continued by explaining that there’s been a spate of burglaries in the area she lives in and that she hopes whoever is responsible is caught.
