Dermot O’Leary has asked fans to help him identify a thief, after they stole his wedding ring last week.

The TV presenter shared a photo of the perpetrator on Instagram, and revealed they got away with his wedding ring after stealing his bag from a gym locker.

Dermot wrote: “I know there are more important things happening in the world right now, but last week my bag (with my wedding ring in it) was stolen from a locked locker at ‘Psycle’ on Mortimer St. London.”

“I’m not after any special preferential treatment. I’m not the victim of a violent crime, and even though no-one should have to – I can handle all the impersonal items being stolen (the wallet, phone, watch, keys etc.) but this man stole my wedding ring & gold crucifix. Something that would mean nothing to him – but everything to me.”

Dermot continued: “I’ve made peace with the knowledge that I’ll probably never see these cherished items again, but I’d really like it if you, your loved ones, or anyone else you know, didn’t have to go through the same ordeal of having your personal items stolen by this man.”

“This is the man who stole my things. If you recognise him, or can give any information on him – please call 101 quoting ref 6195/21Aug.”

“Please share, retweet and get his face everywhere, so he doesn’t get to steal your most treasured possessions. Thank you. Dermot. X.”

Dermot has been married to TV producer Dee Koppang since 2012, and the couple recently welcomed their first child together.
