Love Island's Laura Anderson reveals terrifying moment she bravely fought off mugger in Barcelona by punching him
LOVE Island star Laura Anderson was the victim of an alleged mugging in Barcelona and felt too scared to leave her hotel room.
The blonde beauty, 31, headed to the Spanish coastal town for a post-lockdown getaway with her new boyfriend Tom Brazier.
After enjoying a delicious seafood dinner, the pair went for a stroll to get some photos of the famous city.
But she had a "gut feeling" that two men were watching them.
After hailing a taxi to head back to the hotel, one of the men attacked Tom – a former bodybuilder – from behind and tried to get his expensive watch off him.
But some quick thinking from Laura, including loud swearing and whack to the shoulder, was able to scare the thieves off.
She opened up about the terrifying experience on her Instagram stories.
Laura said: "Hey guys so obviously, you know I am in Barcelona but last night was really horrible. Me and Tom went for dinner then decided to walk a little bit, try get a photo and basically got mugged.
"Nothing like this has ever happened to me before even when I worked for Emirates, travelling myself and stuff and Tom is pretty big.
"You know when you've just got a gut feeling? These two guys were just watching us and then I kept saying to Tom and he was like 'it's fine it's fine'."
She said: "So I just ran round the back of the cab and was like 'F*** off!' and whacked him on the shoulder with my phone which he could have taken and they scuffled off and it was just horrible and Tom was like get back in the car and we drove off.
"I didn't know where his friend was, I didn't know if he was gonna come from behind me or if he had any weapons, you just don't know – just for a watch!"
Laura warned fans to be careful when they travel and revealed a someone spiked her friend's drink in Barcelona on the same night.
"So I just wanted to say if anyone goes to Barcelona or anywhere in Europe, the pickpockets are just rife but to be actually physically -Tom doesn't think he was attacked because he's very brave but the guy did attack him and yeah and I think we both reacted pretty well and it was fine," she told fans.
Today Barcelona has been put back in to lockdown, in a second blow for Laura and Tom's trip.
Laura starred in the 2018 series of Love Island and went public with her relationship with the fitness trainer in May.
