Taking to Twitter, the TV doctor said: "I had the BEST night last night. Sadly, on my way home from SoHo when I was walking to get a taxi, I was approached by a man who robbed me.

In a follow-up post, he assured fans that he was fine, saying: "I'm OK. A little shaken, but mostly just angry about it all because he approached me as if he needed help.
