Leanne Zaloumis, 29, of Catford, south-east London, allegedly broke in to the Holland Park home of the X Factor founder.

She appeared at West London Magistrates' Court charged with aggravated burglary.

The alleged break-in took place at the west London home of the talent show creator at 22:30 GMT on Saturday.
