Television host Gretchen Ho fell victim to thieves in London, losing her bag which contained her passport, money, cellphone and a few important documents.
Ho, a host for ABS-CBN’s show told the early morning program in an interview that she was shopping at Oxford St., when the incident occurred.
She said she was trying on some clothes when her bag was taken.
“I even saw the woman’s face. We even looked at each other,” Ho, who also pitches in as an anchor or reporter for TV Patrol, said in Filipino.
Ho related she simply placed her bag underneath the pile of shopping bags she had with her.
“She was beautiful. People here say usually the thieves look well-to-do, some even in a suit,” she added.
Her camera was spared though. Ho said she immediately asked the credit card company to block usage of it.
She thanked the Filipino community for helping her.
Ho is in London to cover the Ride London, considered as the world’s biggest cycling festival.
“It’s because I decided yesterday to have some alone time; this is why I really need to look for a partner so I would always have someone with me,” she joked.
