Stelling, 68, spent Sunday evening in Chesterfield but finished his show to find his car vandalised.

One of the doors was sliced open, leaving a huge gash that has ruined the bodywork.

Stelling revealed he had contacted the police over the matter while he also took to social media to blast the perpetrators.

He wrote: “Thanks Chesterfield. Anyone who knows the scumbags who did this to my car while I was trying to entertain people please let me know.

“What the f*** has happened to people.”

He added: “@DerbyshirePolice Any prospect of you attending Casa hotel for attempted car theft/serious damage on Range River Sport reported over an hour ago?

“I know you have other things to do but told a police van came past briefly but no one yet bothered to contact me – the owner.”

Some of Stelling’s followers offered their condolences or tried to help, while others made jokes at his expense.

A frustrated Stelling responded to those comments, adding: “You know what. That is almost as depressing as getting car sliced open.”

Stelling quite Sky Sports at the end of last season as he revealed working on Soccer Saturday was making him ill.

The former TV presenter says he became too “tired” and “stressed” to go out afterwards on Saturday nights with his wife and family.

He said after quitting: “I had the most fantastic run on the show.

“But the show was heading in a direction which meant it wasn’t quite the same.

“Even though I’d been there a long time, I felt some of my views weren’t considered at all. Every week I was fighting a battle. I got tired of fighting and it was making me ill.

“Eventually, I went to Sky’s management and said: ‘This is making me unwell. I’ve got to step away from it.’”
