Katherine Jenkins speaks for first time about horror of mugging as she tried to save pensioner

'I’d do it again'

KATHERINE Jenkins has spoken for the first time about the horror of being mugged as she stepped in to save a pensioner.

The opera singer was on her way for a charity gig rehearsal last December when she saw a woman being robbed.

Katherine, 39, said: “She was clearly in distress, screaming for help.

“So many people just walked past. It was an instinct to rush over and I got attacked as well.

“I didn’t consider that people might know who I am. If it happened again I’d do it again.”

Katherine, who sang later in the charity show, said: “I was shaken up initially. But my instinct is always to keep going.”

In January, a 15-year-old girl walked free from court after admitting taking the star’s iPhone.

Pictures from the scene after the attack showed a distraught-looking Katherine talking to police.

Witnesses said she had flagged down a passing patrol car and that they had chased the suspects and arrested them.
