British actress Rachael Stirling took on a mugger who snatched her mobile phone outside her London home - and won.
The 29-year-old daughter of DAME Diana Rigg discovered a temper she never knew she had during the recent episode in West London.
She says, "He drove onto the pavement at about 10 at night. Before I knew it, he grabbed my phone and tried to speed off. Of course, the stupid a**e dropped the phone, so I picked it up and shouted abuse after him."
