Kathy Burke fought off a "small fry" mugger who tried to steal her money in broad daylight yesterday (08.12.15).
The 'Kevin and Perry Go Large' star used her "street wisdom" to fight off the "kid" who attempted to snatch her wad of notes as she withdrew it from a cashpoint.
Taking to her Twitter account after the incident, the 51-year-old actress issued a stark warning to the culprit.
She tweeted: "To the kid that just tried to rob me at the cash point - F**k you small fry - my genius is street wisdom."
After being bombarded with concerned messages from her fans, the star claimed she was unharmed and warned her followers to be vigilant over the Christmas period.
She wrote: "I'm fine thanks guys - good warning for folks to be aware - it's nuts out there cos of poxy Crimbo xx (sic)."
Kathy, who lives in Islington, North London, refused to dish out anymore information on the heartless attack.
Meanwhile, the actress will return to the big screen next year in the highly anticipated 'Absolutely Fabulous' movie alongside Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley.
Kathy will reprise her role as Magda, Joanna's alter-ego Patsy Stone's editor, in the long-awaited comedy film.
