BOYZONE star Stephen Gately has been telling the Ham&High how much he loves Highgate and Cruch End - despite the burglary in which he lost £80,000 of jewellery, including some irreplaceable pieces with sentimental value.

The Irish singer told the Ham&High: "I really love Highgate and wouldn't move away for the world. It has a great vibe and the people here are brilliant.

"I also love going out to Crouch End's restaurants - it's just such a great area to live in."

Of the burglary he said: "I'm deeply upset because these items had great sentimental value and the reality is that they'll probably be sold off for a fraction of their true value in some second-hand shop. Of all the things I've lost, I'm most upset about my inscribed Rolex watch as all the boys in the band bought one as a memento with our first pay cheques when we became famous."
