Billi Mucklow and Andy Carroll’s shock as ‘scumbag’ snatches phone out of their baby’s hands

Billi Mucklow and Andy Carroll’s shock as ‘scumbag’ snatches phone out of their baby’s hands

The former TOWIE star said the incident made her 'sick to her stomach'

Billi Mucklow has been left feeling ‘sick to her stomach’ after someone snatched her phone from her baby’s hand while out shopping.

The former The Only Way is Essex star, 35, was out shopping in London with husband Andy Carroll when a woman came along and ripped the phone from their daughter Marvel’s hands.

In a post on her Instagram Stories, Billi shared details of the incident which has left her furious and feeling ‘sick’.

She explained: "Marvel was sitting in her pram watching my phone, some dirty scumbag grabbed my phone. She screamed crying, ‘Lady took my phone'.

“I looked up to see someone running off. She was screaming, they obviously grabbed it from her and she wouldn’t go and then they must have snatched it out of her hands.

The couple were left shaken by the incident.

“How dare someone touch my baby. I’ve never felt so sick to my stomach that someone had gone near her. Couldn’t give a f**k about my phone.”

In a further post on Twitter, her husband said: "Some absolute scumbag woman just ripped @BilliMucklow phone out of our baby's hand in Westfield Stratford.

"Marvel was sitting in her pushchair and started screaming when the women attacked and ran off!!!"

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told the Daily Mail: “We have received a report of a theft that is alleged to have occurred at Westfield Stratford City on the afternoon of Sunday, 12 March. There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.”

Billi and Andy share three children together - Arlo, seven; Wolf, six; and two-and-a-half-year-old Marvel. Footballer Andy also has two children from a previous relationship.

Mum Billi said the incident left her feeling sick to her stomach.

The pair, who have been together for almost a decade, tied the knot in June 2022 in an extravagant ceremony in Hampshire.

Prior to becoming a mum, Billi had been a cast regular on TOWIE - joining the popular show back in 2011. She exited just two years later in 2013 and has since retrained as a bikram yoga teacher working at Hot Yoga Essex.

A post about Billi on the studio’s page explains that she originally attended with her dad but ‘fell in love almost instantly’ with hot yoga and began to go to classes ‘almost every day for two years’.

After becoming a regular, Billi realised she could make a career out of it ‘so that she could share with others the benefits Bikram had brought to her– both mentally and physically’.
