EMMERDALE'S Gemma Oaten is furious after her vulnerable parents are burgled during the coronavirus lockdown.
The former soap actress, 35, tweeted earlier today that a number of goods were stolen from her mum and dad.
This is especially bad for them, as they are both at "high risk" of developing complications if they contract coronavirus.
Gemma tweeted earlier today: "So my parents, who are high risk, were burgled yesterday, food and essentials gone.
"Makes my blood boil. However us oatens always bounce back. When I'm next home I'm camping out to catch them.
"Seriously though… please be kind. PLEASE think of the bigger picture X sta safe x [sic.]"
The actress has received many messages of support, including fellow Emmerdale alumnus Samantha Giles, who wrote: "So sorry to hear this Gemma sending love to you and your parents xxx"
The soap's Liam Fox added: "bloody hell Gemma! That's disgusting! Hope they're ok"
Gemma replied: "They've been through so much the last year bless them xxx"
This isn't the first time they've been targeted by burglars – as they were robbed around Christmas too.
When a fan pointed this out, Gemma replied: "It did. They know what they're doing. We had all the security updated last time.
"Police said they know exactly what they're doing. Left my folks with over hundreds of pounds worth of damage… Which no one has right now."
Gemma can't get supplies to her parents as she is isolating in London, while they live in Hull, but her siblings have been picking up the slack.
