Clooney intruder arrested

An intruder has been arrested for reportedly breaking into the wine cellar of actor George Clooney's Italian mansion.

A 29-year-old Romanian man scaled the fence at the Gravity star's Lake Como villa on Wednesday and stole a bottle of expensive wine from Clooney's well-stocked cellar.

The unidentified man then attempted to enter the main house but he was spotted by a member of the actor's staff, who called police.

When officers arrived, the man allegedly threatened them with the bottle but was overpowered and arrested.

He has been charged with theft.

Meanwhile, Clooney is said to have surprised his fiancée Amal Alamuddin with a tour of the Downton Abbey set.

The 53-year-old actor, who became engaged to the British human rights lawyer last month, arrived at Alamuddin's London home unannounced earlier this week and whisked her away on a trip to nearby Surrey, in southeast England, where he took her to visit the set of one of her favourite TV shows.

"George took Amal completely by surprise," a source told The Sun newspaper.

"He turned up at nearly midnight after jetting into Heathrow.

"George literally told Amal to grab some clothes before they jumped in a cab down to Surrey.

"She though it was so romantic, she loves how unpredictable he is. The set visit to Downton Abbey was the icing on the cake of a crazy few hours."

The couple are said to have indulged in a romantic stroll around the grounds of Highclere Castle, where the ITV period drama is set.

Meanwhile, The Monuments Men star is expected to meet his future mother-in-law, who lives in nearby Buckinghamshire, while visiting the UK.

Clooney will reportedly relocate to London once the pair have married so that Alamuddin can continue her work as a barrister at the Doughty Street Chambers.
