‘X Factor‘ boss Simon Cowell‘s house was broken into Saturday night, and he was faced with a 29-year-old woman armed with a brick. She broke into his West London home, and wandered around before being discovered by security. She smashed a downstairs window of the £9 million mansion whilst he was watching TV in his lounge, and moved form room to room, even taking a nap on his bed and looking for his bathroom!
He told the press after the incident: “It was an absolutely terrifying experience. Seeing this woman standing there in my house was like something out of a horror movie. It was frightening but I’m going to take it as a warning. In some ways I’ve been lucky. You have to look on the positive side because it could have been a whole lot worse. I now know that I need to improve my security. She could have had a gun.”
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Police were called at approximately 22:35 on Saturday to reports of a disturbance. Officers attended the address and found a woman had forced entry to the premises. She was arrested on suspicion of burglary and taken to a West London police station.”
