Dr Ranj Singh: TV medic tells of anger after being mugged in central London following Brits afterparty

February 10, 2022

Dr Ranj Singh has urged people to be careful when coming home at night, after he was mugged following a Brits afterparty in central London.

The celebrity medic said his watch was stolen as he was targeted while walking to a taxi in Soho on Tuesday evening.

Writing on Twitter, he said he was angry as the robber had appeared to be in trouble and need help.

Dr Ranj, 42, said: "I feel like I got taken advantage of because I thought he was genuine."

The TV star said: "I had the BEST night last night. Sadly, on my way home from Soho when I was walking to get a taxi, I was approached by a man who robbed me.

"It all happened so quickly and luckily I wasn't hurt at all (the git stole my watch though), but it could have been so much worse.

"I foolishly chased after him, but he got away. I now know that's not a good idea as sometimes these people will lead you into a trap.

"I wasn't going to say anything because I felt stupid and a little bit embarrassed, but after speaking to some friends I thought it might just serve as a reminder: please be careful when coming home at night - even in spaces you think are safe."

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant added: "Look out for each other peeps."

He later wrote: "I'm OK. A little shaken, but mostly just angry about it all because he approached me as if he needed help. I feel like I got taken advantage of because I thought he was genuine. Another life lesson learned."

Dr Ranj, who regularly practices medicine on the NHS frontline, had shared his excitement ahead of Tuesday's Brits ceremony, saying: "OMG! I'm SO EXCITED because tonight I get to go to THE BRIT AWARDS!! I've never been before and have always watched from home and had massive FOMO!"
