“Kit turning up by the hour — probably 75 percent of it back now,” he tweeted. “No doubt in my mind that you guys instigated us getting it back,” said Hollioake. “On a positive note, I know my bro would be happy everyone was talking about him again. He loved the spotlight. He probably arranged the theft himself from heaven,” Hollioake added.
