SINGING star Susan Boyle discovered an intruder at her home in West Lothian last night – just hours after helping record a song for Haiti.
SuBo returned to her council house in Blackburn with a friend shortly before 10pm and confronted the man who was on the stairs at her home.
It was claimed the intruder then fled past SuBo and her pal. He was detained by police and later released after questioning.
Susan, 48, was said to have been left “very shocked” by the drama which comes just weeks after she had a panic alarm fitted in her home because of prowlers.
A friend told reporters: “Susan got home to find an intruder halfway up her stairs.
“She was with a female pal who was dropping her off.
“Her pal only expected to be with her for a couple of minutes, but it is just as well she was.
“Susan is unharmed, but obviously very, very shocked.
“The guy has seen her come in and bolted out straight past Susan.”
Workers were called out to repair a door at the property.
A police spokesperson said: “Police were called at around 9.50pm last night following reports of a disturbance there.
“A man was detained in connection with the incident, but has been released without charge pending further enquiry.”
Susan had previous said she wanted to buy the house because of her childhood memories.
However it has become a mecca for her fans from around the world.
In December, she had a scare when two people were spotted peering in through her back window.
It was thought she made an estimated £5 million from her debut album I Dreamed A Dream.
She is one of several big name stars taking part in recording the Song for Haiti charity single Everybody Hurts.
