The model, 29, said two masked men tried to rip rings off her after roughing up the England star.

Talking for the first time about her ordeal in London, she said: “I thought I was going to be killed.”

The traumatised model lay in the dark as two men with concealed weapons burst into her bedroom.

She added that the thugs roughed up Dele and made him hand over three watches, including a Rolex.

Ruby was in bed with the lights off and tried to protect their dog as the men grabbed her arms for her rings and bracelets.

They failed to take them before panicking and fleeing with the goods.

Ruby told The Sun: “It was like a movie. I feared all sorts of things were going to happen.

“I honestly didn’t know what was going to come next.”

She had been watching Netflix thriller Dead To Me, and Dele and pals were playing pool downstairs when the burglars evaded security to get in through the back door.

Ruby said: “They roughed up Dele and forced him upstairs with them into the wardrobe area, which is separated from the bedroom.

“I couldn’t see the door from the bed but Dele’s friend came up first.

“They came to me in a panic and I instantly realised something was wrong. His friend wouldn’t have usually come into the bedroom.

“Behind the friend, towards the door was what looked like a silhouette. I was confused and said, ‘Dele?’ and the guy didn’t answer.

“I realised this guy was not the same height or body structure as Dele. He came over to me and was very intimidating.

“He started asking me where everything was while trying to take off my bracelets and rings.”

She added: “It was terrifying. I was just hoping for it all to be over and for us to be safe.”

Desperate Ruby tried to shield poodle Uno at the £2million home in North London.

She said: “I had taken the dog out to go to the ­toilet, then went upstairs.

“When the burglar came in, my first instinct was to protect the dog.

“I wasn’t answering any of their questions as I was in shock and didn’t know, at this point, that there were two of them — and that one was already taking the jewellery with Dele.

“I couldn’t get the jewellery off as I was panicking and holding the dog behind me.

“I wasn’t answering his requests and I was terrified they were going to hurt Uno.

“I didn’t know whether to tell them or not, and I didn’t even know where everything was. I wasn’t thinking straight.”

Ruby said the raiders began to panic when they realised how long they had been in the house.

She added: “They jumped the fence out the front and ran away with whatever they had both managed to find. I don’t have a clue how they got past the security and into the house.

“The police turned up a few minutes later. They were very helpful and made sure we were OK.”

Dele, 27, his adoptive brother Harry Hickford, 27, and the pal were badly shaken.

Ruby added: “It affected all of us. To get burgled is one thing, but to get burgled when you’re in is so scary. All of us were speechless.

“We were all just like, ‘What the hell has happened?’ We didn’t even know what to say to each other.

“We were all very emotional and up and down. We were tired and had to do the police interviews. It was all very traumatic.

“Psychologically, it has had an impact. Being home alone is scarier than it once was.

“Every now and then I still think about it. I can’t believe it happened. It was awful.”

After the raid in May 2020’s Covid lockdown, police gave Dele and Ruby alarms to activate if they were in danger which signalled directly through to cops.

Ruby said they randomly sounded weeks later and police turned up with a dog unit within moments.

It’s a pretty weird feeling knowing the people who did it never got caught and are still out there

The alarms were on top of the 24-hour security they already had in place before the break-in.

No arrests have been made and the attackers remain at large.

Ruby said: “It’s a pretty weird feeling knowing the people who did it never got caught and are still out there.

“But they took stuff that can be replaced, so I’m just glad we all got through it without something really serious happening.

“A watch is a watch, who cares. As long as you’re safe, that’s the most important thing.”

Ruby and Dele split in 2021 — less than a year after the raid — with Ruby saying they “drifted” and lost their spark.

They had met in a London bar in 2016 and for five years were one of the most photographed young couples in Britain.

Ex-Tottenham midfielder Dele won PFA Young Player of the Year two years running, and made his Three Lions debut aged 19 in 2015.

He scored in a 2-0 win over Sweden in the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with Ruby, from Wigston, Leics, cheering him on with other Wags.

But Dele lost his place in the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers and has yet to be recalled.

He returned early and has yet to play for Everton this season.

Last year Dele revealed that one of his mum’s friends had abused him as a child.

He also spent six weeks in rehab in the United States for an addiction to sleeping pills.

Last Monday Dele appeared on Sky Sports as an analyst as his side were hammered 6-0 by Chelsea.

He revealed his ambitions to play for England again saying: “You know you can set reminders on your phone. I have a reminder at 11 o’clock every day that says ‘World Cup 2026’. That’s my aim for now.

“I know how good I can be when my head is in the right place, and I’m feeling good.”

Ruby remains a successful model and said: “People think it’s a glamorous life but it’s quite cut-throat with a lot of pressure to look a certain way.

“The good things are that you get to meet amazing people, work with different brands daily and travel.”
