A woman who allegedly broke into Simon Cowell's home has been remanded in custody.

Leanne Zaloumis, 29, spoke only to confirm her name and address when she appeared before West London Magistrates' Court today (26.03.12) to answer a charge of aggravated burglary with intent after she was discovered holding a brick and roaming through the music mogul's house on Saturday (24.03.12).

During the eight-minute hearing, the court heard the defendant intended to ''inflict grievous bodily harm upon a person therein and at the time of committing the said burglary had with [her] a weapon of offense, namely a broken house brick.''

Zaloumis was remanded in custody until the case goes before a Crown Court judge on June 12.

Simon was left ''shaken'' by the incident, which occurred while he was at home watching a TV interview of himself on 'The Jonathan Ross Show'.

His spokesperson, Max Clifford, said on 'This Morning': ''Simon was sitting watching Jonathan Ross when there was suddenly a huge crash.

''He went to investigate and there was a woman standing there. His housekeeper was there and his security was close by so she was quickly apprehended. It was terrifying, but as Simon said, 'You've got to say I was lucky.'

''Last night when I spoke to him he was still shaky but settled down.''
