Katherine Ryan has revealed that her boyfriend fought off a masked burglar at the weekend, who stole jewellery and attempted to steal her laptop (which included her Netflix scripts). In an Instagram Story, The Glitter Room star showed police at her London home and wrote, ‘Cool to be robbed tonight by a masked man in our home.’

In another an Instagram clip posted, she pointed out blood on the laptop, saying, ‘This is why I love Bobby K [Kootstra]. He got in a fight and wrestled back my Netflix series, all my scripts.’

While the thief didn’t get away with the laptop, the stand-up comedian revealed that unfortunately a ring had been stolen. She shared an image of the jewellery on Twitter, asking, ‘Is there a way to circulate this foreshadowing ring around pawn shops that the masked man stole before he was tackled into the street?’

The star also joked that she would get a German shepherd after her small dogs slept through the scary incident. She added that she was finding it difficult to sleep after the attack, joking, ‘That's fine, I never liked sleeping anyway’.

Ryan and Koostra were childhood sweethearts, but it's reported by the BBC that were reunited after two decades while filming for BBC series Who Do You Think You Are? in her hometown of Sarnia, west of Toronto.

In July 2019, Netflix released her second live stand-up special,Katherine Ryan: Glitter Room.

The mum-of-one will also star in upcoming Netflix series The Duchess, where she will play a 'fashionably disruptive single mom'. Speaking to RadioTimes, Ryan teased details of the show, 'The Duchess is super authentic I think to my personality, to my stage persona, because it’s a disruptive mum who’s a bad person but a good mum. She’s fashionable, she loves being a mother she’s not sad about it — it’s me, yes. The rest is fiction, but it is a heightened version of me, and I’m really lucky because they’re just letting me go and write the real thing that I would have wanted to.'
