Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 55, shocked fans when he revealed that he and his family were burgled while they slept during their luxury vacation to the south of France last month. Among the many sentimental items that were taken, he's also now revealed that they took the equivalent of £10,000 made up of stirling, euros and dollars.
They took more than ten grand — that was in euros and Pounds and some dollars
He reportedly felt like the burglary was very "orchestrated" and believed they targeted him after laying eyes on his watch.
"It was very orchestrated, and just very unnerving," he said.
"I saw a drone flying over and hovering a couple of days beforehand. They were clearly doing a recee of the villas.
"Apparently they follow you back from Club 55, see you flash your watches, and then clean people out.

"They found my briefcase which happened to have a lot of money in it which I hadn’t spent because everywhere you can use cards."
The GMB presenter revealed he had a large sum of money in Stirling, Euros and Dollars that had also been taken.
“They took more than ten grand — that was in Euros and Pounds and some Dollars. So once they got a bundle of cash, they took that and jewellery, and didn’t take anything else," he said.
“They didn’t take any of the laptops or phones as they're all traceable now, and luckily they didn’t take any of the cards."
