Vogue Williams was left shaken and "very upset" after she was mugged by two men.

The Dublin presenter, who has been on RTE screens with her Reality Bites series, had her phone stolen in the incident in London yesterday.

The model turned TV host and DJ, who is living in the UK, was walking alone when she was approached by two men on a moped.

Vogue, who hails from Howth, was grabbed and pushed to the ground by her attackers, who grabbed her mobile phone.

The 29-year-old took to social media to warn her 65,000 Twitter followers to be careful when using their phones in public.

"Just had two men on a moped push me to the ground and steal my phone when I was on it. Be really careful using your phone in public," she said.

The incident took place the day after the blonde model attended a party for the Golden Globes alongside fashion guru Darren Kennedy and Made in Chelsea star Ollie Locke.

A shaken Vogue said she was too upset to comment on the mugging when contacted by the Herald last night.

The incident comes just days after Vogue admitted that she was feeling lost and confused about her direction in life.

The Dubliner opened up about her split from ex-husband, Brian McFadden, whom she married in 2012 before they went their separate ways in July of last year.

Since the break-up, Vogue has been questioning what she's going to do with her life, and says fears over the future have worsened anxiety issues she has always struggled with.

"My head's all over the place," she said. "I feel like I don't have a goal. Everything that I wanted is sort of gone.

"I wanted to be married and I wanted to have kids for so long - and now that's kind of gone, and I'm like, 'What do I do now?'

"I'm trying to figure out where I'm going with my life - and that causes a lot of anxiety."
