A FOOTIE star’s wife has been told she cannot have her stolen Range Rover back — because someone else has bought it.

Bonnie Hoyte, 32, fears she will be left with no car and no insurance payout.

She was told that the buyer of the stolen vehicle has the same rights as her

The dental hygienist, married to ex-Arsenal, Watford and Brighton defender Gavin Hoyte, said police told her the buyer has equal rights to the white Evoque.

She said: “It’s a complete joke. I’m a victim of crime and this is costing me thousands of pounds.

“A system that lets people keep stolen property is completely broken. Surely it’s their responsibility to check the car wasn’t stolen?”

Her Evoque was taken in Thurrock, Essex, in July. Bonnie’s insurers initially agreed to pay but the total was £8,000 less than the finance agreement.

The car was tracked down to South London but had been resold for £14,000.

But when Bonnie told her insurance company, the claim was cancelled — so she is still paying out £420 a month with no car.

She faces a court battle to get it back. But even if the new buyer loses, the car could be awarded to the finance firm.

Bonnie blasted: “How can the rightful owner not get the car? It’s insane.”
