Susan Boyle returned home from recording a charity record for Haiti earthquake survivors to find an intruder inside her house.
The man ran out of the house in Blackburn, West Lothian, when the singing star and Britain’s Got Talent finalist opened the front door on Tuesday night.
She had just flown back to Scotland from London where she had been helping to record the Helping Haiti single, The Sun reported.
BBC News reports that on Wednesday Susan gave her characteristic thumbs up and said: “I’m fine. It’s in the hands of the police now.”
A police spokesman confirmed the incident: “Lothian and Borders Police were called to an address in Blackburn at around 9.50pm yesterday following reports of a disturbance.
“A man was detained in connection with the incident and released pending further inquiries.”
Former church worker Susan, 48, became an international star after her performance of a hit song from Les Miserables wowed the audience and judges on Britain’s Got Talent last year.
Her album, I Dreamed A Dream, went straight to No 1 in the charts and achieved the best first week’s sale for a debut.
But despite her fame, she has not moved from the council house she has lived in since she was a child.
