V presenter Dec Donnelly and his family were reportedly targeted by professional burglars trying to break into their £ 5million home in west London

The gang attempted to enter the property while Donnelly, 45, his wife Ali, 43, and daughter Isla, 2, slept through the early hours of yesterday

The criminals fled in a car moments before police arrived at 1 a.m. Tuesday after a 999 call

A source told The Sun that Donnelly – half of the presenting duo of Britain’s Got Talent and I’m A Celebrity Ant and Dec – wasn’t bothered by burglars and his wife either

Forensic agents were seen yesterday in the upscale neighborhood as undercover detectives conducted door-to-door investigations and viewed CCTV

It is believed that Donnelly bought the house for £ 1.9m in 2006 on the same street where McPartlin lived

Scotland Yard said: “Police were called at around 12.40 a.m. to reports of an attempted burglary on a residential property

“The officers were present The suspects had left the scene before the police arrived There was no evidence that they had gained access to the property
