Myleene Klass' Death Wish For Family Mugger
TV presenter Myleene Klass has wished a slow death on the person who mugged her mother and sister.
The singer vented her anger in comments on Twitter but gave no details about where or when the attack took place, or whether her family were hurt.
The 35-year-old, whose mother came to Britain from the Philippines to train as a nurse, wrote: "To the person who mugged my 67-year-old mum and my sister. I hope you get hit by a bus and die. Slowly."
The message received more than 200 retweets and messages from other celebrities including fellow presenter Kate Thornton, Spice Girl Emma Bunton and actress Martine McCutcheon.
Klass, a mother of two, was herself described as "very shaken up" after she was attacked by a gang in Bermondsey, south London, in 2005.
She recently joined TV chat show Loose Women as a guest panellist.
