Former Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha Kovalev had his mobile phone stolen in a robbery outside a London theatre, it has been reported.
The 39 year old is said to have had his phone snatched in a moped robbery after watching his former co-stars Neil and Katya Jones’ dance show Somnium at Sadler’s Wells in North London.
Pasha announced that he has left the hit BBC show after eight years in February.
A source told The Sun following the horrific robbery: “Two people drove at him aggressively. They mounted the pavement and his phone was gone in a flash. He was shaking and very upset.”

They continued: “The phone had lots of images on it. Pasha is doing everything he can to get to the bottom of this.”
An eyewitness told the publication: “He was knocked off balance and very upset.
“As soon as it dawned on him what had happened he told people around him ‘The mobile is unlocked‘.”
Pasha is said to have dashed back inside the theatre to see if CCTV of the attack had been recorded. He then called the police and handed footage over.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed they had been called.
They said: “It is alleged that two men on mopeds stole a phone from a man as he walked down the road. No arrests have been made, enquiries continue.“
The terrifying attack comes days after his girlfriend Rachel dropped a major hint over the gender of the couple’s first child.

Rachel, 33, dropped a major hint that she and Pasha are going to welcome a baby girl, after revealing that she “couldn't see a penis“ during her latest scan during an episode of Celebrity Gogglebox.
Sitting on the couch, Rachel told an amused Pasha: “Everyone keeps asking me if it is girl or a boy but it’s too early.
I did look on the scan and I was like ‘I can’t see a penis‘.”
She continued: “But they said it was too early so I might just be insulting our son.”
