She then showed her laptop with spots of blood on it and thanked her boyfriend Bobby for stopping it from being stolen.
The comedian said: 'This is why I love Bobby K because he got in a fight and wrestled back my Netflix series, all my scripts... and that is blood.'
Katherine revealed in August that Bobby was her first love but they did not speak for 20 years due to him breaking her heart.
She candidly discussed how they rekindled their relationship back in April.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, the comedian said although the couple had been in love, Bobby had ended the relationship because the teens needed to experience life.
She said: 'I was a handful when I was a teenager. When he split with me, I don't blame him.
'He was like, Katherine, we have to travel, we have to go to university. He was very logical.

'When you're 16 and in love, you think that's it. I was like, 'what do you mean we're not getting married?'
'We didn't speak for 20 years because of how heartbroken I was. I went out with my sister and bumped into him into a pub and if you've seen my Instagram, you know he's beautiful.'
And speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, the comedian recounted the moment her heart stopped when she set her sights on Bobby for the first time in 20 years — and he looked like a Hemsworth brother.

She said: 'I went to the pub with my sister and into this pub walks my first love from when I was 15 years old.
'I haven't seen him in 20 years. I'm in an old jumper, he looked like a full blood Hemsworth brother, just hot… I hadn't seen him in 20 years.
'Of course [I recognised him] I'm the one with the whole new face, Jonathan!
'I really did like him at the time. When we were young, I was deeply in love with him. We were Prom King and Queen.'
Katherine had just returned from Canada after filming a documentary and promised her sister she would go for a drink at the local pub.
She said it was fate that she and Bobby's paths crossed once again at the pub.

However, it's not been smooth as she joked her beau is 'under review' because her daughter Violet, six, from a previous relationship, didn't want them to date.
She said: 'I like him but now we need to worry about hiding from my daughter… She didn't want us dating so we'll see, he's under review.'
Katherine joked about being on a manbatical — which is a break from dating men — for 10 years in 2016.

The funny woman also revealed she was OK with not having a boyfriend until reaching the age of 75.
She previously told Marie Claire in 2016: 'Well, I'm going to be single for ten years.
'I'm on a manbatical, [a term] coined by my friend Claire. In ten years, I'll be the same age as, like, Louise Redknapp, who's an absolute babe.
'And if I don't have a boyfriend until I'm 75, that'll be fine. I want to do up the house and I don't need to get sign-off on wallpaper from anyone – it's amazing. Are you married?'
Strength to strength: In April, Katherine lifted the lid on how she's giving love a second chance with her childhood sweetheart during her appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show
