What happened with Dermot O’Leary’s wedding ring?

Dermot admitted he isn’t hopeful about getting his belongings back.

The cops’ tweet, which included a snap of the suspect, read: “Do you recognise this man? We wish to speak to him re. theft of a bag from a gym in Mortimer Street W1 on August 13.

“Items stolen include a wedding ring etched on inner side with ’14/9/12 Team KO’.

“Pls call police on 101 ref 6195/21aug with any info about the man or the stolen ring (sic).”

Dermot, who retweeted the message, said: “Sadly this was my wedding ring and bag that was stolen. I’m sure I won’t see them again, but I’d really like it if he didn’t have the opportunity to steal yours.

“Please have a good look at the picture and if you recognise him call, 101 ref 6195/21aug Dx @MPSWestminster @metpoliceuk.”

On Instagram, he shared a message about the stolen ring and posted the photo of the suspect.

A number of his celebrity pals rushed to help by sharing the image for their own followers, including actress Suranne Jones and presenter Rochelle Humes.

I’m sure I won’t see them again.

Dermot married his wife Dee Koppang O’Leary in 2012.

This summer, the couple welcomed their first child, son Kasper.

At the time, they took to their Instagram accounts to share identical posts announcing the birth.

“Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cat’s yet to be 100 per cent convinced. Lots of love, Dermot and Dee x.”

He later revealed his son’s first name on his BBC 2 Radio show, when he played him a special song.
