She posted a few minutes later that Medway police were aware.
Her boyfriend Tom Richards Tweeted a picture of Westbrook's black Peugeot with the message: "@westbrookdanni car just been stolen , if anyone sees this can u please contact the police".
But it has now been reported that the car was in fact taken by bailiffs.
She told the Daily Mirror it was a "complete and utter misunderstanding".
