TOWIE star Gemma has spoken out about the frightening encounter, which police are investigating, and has admitted that it has left her "shaken".
In an interview with the Daily Star, Gemma revealed that she had crossed paths with the mystery men in the communal area of her building, before heading upstairs and finding her front door wide open.
She explained: "The thieves had emptied out all of my jewellery and stolen two diamond rings. I'm very shaken. I will have to find a new home."
Plus-sized fashion designer Gemma first revealed she was a victim of burglary on Tuesday (24 February), when she took to Twitter to tell of her shock.
Describing the incident as "sick", she warned the culprits that her CCTV cameras are likely to have caught them in the act.
"So happy, the two guys that robbed my home yesterday, you have been caught on camera - face on everything trashing my home and stealing #sick," she said.
Essex Police are investigating.
