Piers Morgan has reportedly opened up on the horrific burglary he and his family experienced in the south of France earlier this year.
The 55 year old, who recently slammed the Kardashians as "dumbo bimbos" with "no brain cells", is said to have explained that the event was carefully planned out by professionals who stole a whopping £10,000 from him as he slept soundly in his villa.
The Good Morning Britain presenter allegedly said the raiders took cash – euros and pounds – jewellery as well as an art deco ring he bought his wife Celia Walden, 44, for their fifth wedding anniversary.

"It was very orchestrated, and just very unnerving," he told The Sun Online.
"I saw a drone flying over and hovering a couple of days beforehand. They were clearly doing a recce of the villas.
"Apparently they follow you back from Club 55, see you flash your watches, and then clean people out.

"I had no idea at the time. We got up as normal the next morning, and Celia said: ‘Why’s my bag out here? It was in the bedroom.’
"She looked in the bag and a lot of stuff had been taken. 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 TV host, who recently joked that GMB stars "hate each other" and have "terrible arguments backstage", reportedly went on to reveal how much money was taken from them.

"They took more than ten grand — that was in euros and Pounds and some dollars," he said. "So once they got a bundle of cash, they took that and jewellery, and didn’t take anything else.
"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.
"But they took presents I’d bought Celia for our fifth wedding anniversary, and irreplaceable bits of jewellery which weren’t hugely expensive but they were of huge sentimental value."

Piers allegedly explained that he had taken precautions to prevent a burglary from happening, but it was in vain.
"I lied about where I was on Instagram and social media. I said I was in St Tropez when, in fact, I was a few miles away in Ramatuelle. I’d deliberately taken measures to avoid this situation," he said.
"I never named the villa or showed where it could be, so it was nothing we did. Unfortunately now there’s not much the police can do."
