Comedian Katherine Ryan has revealed a masked man broke into her home over the weekend and tried to steal her scripts.
The 36-year-old took to Instagram last night to reveal her boyfriend had fought off intruders and managed to save her Netflix series before police arrived.

Katherine shared a picture of the police at her home and told fans: “Cool to be robbed tonight by a masked man in our home.”
She went on to show her laptop splattered in blood and praised her boyfriend Bobby for rescuing it.
“This is why I love Bobby K because he got in a fight and wrestled back my Netflix series and scripts.”
Following the ordeal, the star was unable to sleep and posted a picture at 5am, telling her followers: “That’s fine I never liked sleeping anyway.”
Earlier this year Katherine revealed she was dating Bobby — her childhood sweetheart — 20 years after they first met.
She told how she’d reunited with her first love thanks to a chance meet in a bar on a trip home.
While filming in Canada, she bumped into Bobby, having not seen him for donkeys’ years — and they’ve now been dating for eight months.
Saying she is the happiest she has been in years, Katherine has re-evaluated her entire stand-up routine, which has always been about embracing single life.
Katherine told The Sun: “I’ve had boyfriends who I’m still friends with, had boyfriends who are now my enemies.
“But he was the first one and he really, really badly broke my heart when we split. We didn’t speak for two decades.”
“I’ve always been a believer you should never go back but you have to make an exception when you’ve spent 20 years apart.
“I’ve heard that all your cells in your whole body are different every seven years, so you become a completely new physical person.
“But I clearly haven’t learned anything from Amber off Love Island.”
