Amanda Abbington’s purse was stolen at the Emmys over the weekend – while she went on stage to collect an award.
The Sherlock star, who plays Mary Morstan in the popular BBC drama, picked up the award for Outstanding TV Movie after Sherlock: The Abominable Bride won the gong – but she sadly had her handbag pinched in the process.
Although an a-list bash like the 68th Emmy Awards is the last place you would expect to be robbed, Amanda revealed that her purse, which contained her phone and driver’s licence, was gone when she returned to her table.
After thanking fans for picking up the Sherlock gong, the furious star took to Twitter to lash out at her mysterious thief.
However, we went up to collect the Emmy, did some press, came back to my seat and some bastard had nicked my purse from under my seat. Nice

“We went up to collect the Emmy, did some press, came back to my seat and some b*****d had nicked my purse from under my seat. Nice.
“Had my phone and driver’s licence in it. So whoever took my purse, I hope some terrible Karmic sh*t happens to you. How crappy is that.
“Thanks for all the kind words re: my handbag. Still no sign of it. And can’t use find my iPhone as my wifi wasn’t on. Onwards and upwards,” she wrote.
