MasterChef star Marcus Wareing’s £7m London mansion was raided by a team of ‘burglary tourists’ who jetted in from Chile and took his watch collection including his prized gold Rolex and his wife’s Louboutin shoes.

The Michelin-starred restaurateur’s Wimbledon home was broken into in October 2019 by a South American gang who sprayed an orange spot on his fence to mark their target.

Mr Wareing was at his second home in Kent with his wife Jane when Danko Carvajal-Donaire, 20, Claudio Donoso, 20, Nicolas Portilla Astorga, 27, and Jorge Rojas, 22, smashed their way in through the six-bedroom property’s patio doors and grabbed £33,000 of valuables from their bedroom.
