SEX AND THE CITY star Kim Cattrall is relieved she was performing on stage when burglars attempted to break into her rented London flat last night (12MAR05).

The 48-year-old was performing in West End play WHOSE LIFE IS IT ANYWAY? when intruders tried to raid the $3.8 million (GBP2 million) Chelsea apartment she shares with close friend JENNIFER GELFER, reports British newspaper the MAIL ON SUNDAY.

An insider says, "She was so scared she considered checking into a hotel but eventually decided to stay on.

"This has done nothing to allay her fears about London. But she was glad she was at the show when it happened."
