Hugh Grant has appealed for the return of a script filled with notes that was stolen from his car on Sunday night. The Paddington 2 actor took to Twitter to make the request, writing: "In the unlikely chance that anyone knows who broke into my car tonight and stole my bag, please try and persuade them to at least return my script. Many weeks' worth of notes and ideas. And perhaps my children's medical cards." He then included an address to Ealing Studios in the hopes that someone would return to script there.

Hugh appealed for the return of an important script

Hugh's Twitter followers were quick to reach out, with one writing: "You may be lucky... Someone stole my mother's handbag from the back of a restaurant chair. Someone else found it under a cab seat & posted it back to her using the address in her diary. From NYC to Berkshire. So various digits crossed for you," another person added: "Keep an eye on Ebay for the script. So sorry this happened to you. I hope the new project will be equally as brilliant as A Very English Scandal is." Of course, others poked fun at the situation, with comedian David Baddiel writing: "I'm sorry. I've had very bad writer's block." Another person tweeted: "Romcom scripts are popular with criminals."
