Giles Coren was gutted when his £65,000 eco-Jag was stolen for the second time.

The TV presenter, 51, first had his Jaguar I-Pace stolen in April and he claimed police told him they did not have the “manpower to investigate” the incident.

At the time, the journalist-turned-detective took his followers on a journey to track down his Jaguar I-Pace which he eventually found in Highgate, north London.

Luckily the journalist was delighted to be reunited with his car for a second time on Friday morning after police officers discovered the vehicle in Northpoint Square.

In a bombshell tweet, he teased the discovery as an “astonishing update” on the car theft on Friday afternoon.

On Thursday, Mr Coren stepped up to the role of detective once again as he told his followers he was back on the hunt for his car.

In a piece to camera, he said: “Heading off now, down into Camden to the housing estate where the car was last pinged. It’s probably been stashed in the car park there.

“I’m travelling on my bicycle with the added incentive of course that if I don’t find my f***ing car, I’m going to be travelling around on this b*****d for the rest of my life.”

His hunt for the car come after he shared a foul-mouthed rant on social media about his vehicle being stolen for the second time.

He tweeted: “They’ve stolen my f***ing car AGAIN!!!! Cost me three grand to reset the keys and put in a new tracking system after last time and what good does it do? F*** ALL.

“If you see a black Jaguar ipace reg ending JVN could you tell me? I’ll give you a million pounds.”
