Police were called to the home Declan Donnelly shares with his family following a report of an attempted burglary.
Thieves targeted the west London property while the TV star, 45, his wife Ali, 43, and daughter Isla were asleep, according to The Sun.
But the robbers had left the scene before police arrived and there was no sign they had gained access to the house.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at approximately 0040hrs on Tuesday 6 April to reports of an attempted burglary at a residential property.

Donnelly’s co-presenter Ant McPartlin used to live in the same road but moved out after his split from wife Lisa Armstrong.
A spokesman for Donnelly has been contacted for comment.
