John Terry’s £5million Surrey mansion was burgled while he was skiiing after he posted pictures of the plush interior on Instagram.
The Chelsea captain, 36, and his wife Toni, 35, were ‘very shaken’ when they got back from the French Alps earlier this week to find thousands of pounds worth of personal items missing.
Friends fear that burglars may have been encouraged to raid the mansion in Oxshott after seeing pictures of it on the couple’s Instagram pages.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s a very real possibility that these burglars have seen some of their posts.
‘It’s like a catalogue for would-be thieves, and even played a part when Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris.’
‘It’s a horrifying incident for any family to go through, and John and Toni have been very shaken by this.’
The source said that the pair have hired extra security in the wake of the burglary.
It is believed that valuable jewellery was taken, with some pieces worth five-figures.
Police are said to be probing the break-in. MailOnline has contacted Surrey Police for comment.
John has three million followers on his Instagram page and Toni has 77,000.
Both their profile are open meaning anyone can see their photos.
Terry bought the £4.35million former mansion of golfer Colin Montgomerie in 2014.
He snapped up the seven-bedroom property after selling his nine-bedroom mansion, situated just a few hundred yards away.
He made a £10million profit by selling his luxury home to General Sultan bin Mohammed al-Naamani, a senior minister for the Arab state – who reportedly purchased it for his boss Sultan Qaboos bin Said.
