Ex-EastEnders actress Daniella Westbrook has been left red-faced after her car was reportedly repossessed but she thought it had been stolen.
The star took to Twitter on Thursday to rant abut her car being nicked in Medway.
She posted: "Just walked out my house my cars [sic] been stolen !!! #Fuming"
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".
She added: "I forgot to set up the direct debit so didn't realise that the payments were not being made."
The former soap star, who played Sam Mitchell in EastEnders, emigrated from Kent to California in 2010, but was reported to have bought another home in the county recently.
Twice married, the 40-year-old was said to have recently got engaged to toyboy lover Tom Richards.
