Vernon Kay 'Caught Stealing BBC Sign'
Presenter admits he was busted by security guard at Television Centre...
TV personality Vernon Kaywas reportedly caught trying to steal a dressing room door sign from BBC Television Centre.
The Splash! presenter confessed to his attempted pilfering in an interview with The Mirror - admitting that he was busted by a security guard.
"It was a sign from my first-ever TV dressing room so I couldn't resist taking it for sentimental reasons," he said.
"The security guard was lovely though and said he would put my name down for it if it came up for auction."
And a source explained that Vernon was not the only offender in the soon-to-be decommissioned iconic building.
"Vernon had obviously had a good night after post-show drinks. Everyone was trying to nick stuff, though.
"People were running out with pocketfuls of collectables. Vern was unlucky - he got caught. Successful looters made off with impressive swag, including a BBC News sign, furniture and toilet signs.
"Security guards were even searching cars to retrieve items that were going walkabout."
