Simon Cowell has offered to pay for Susan Boyle to have a luxury holiday.

The 48-year-old star was left shaken after returning to her home in West Lothian, Scotland on Tuesday (26.01.10) to find an intruder in the property, prompting the music mogul to insist he would provide the cash for an all-expenses paid break to help her get over the ordeal.

But Susan said she'd rather stay at home with her cat Pebbles.

A source said: "Simon had a lengthy chat with her and said he would do anything to help. He offered her a wonderfully relaxing holiday to get away from everything.

"She said it was a sweet offer but wanted to stay at home and, if she changed her mind, she would call him."

The 'I Dreamed A Dream' singer had been recording vocals for Simon's Haiti charity single before heading back home to find the man halfway up her stairs.

Upon being discovered the startled intruder ran past the scared music star.

A friend said: "Susan got home to find an intruder halfway up her stairs. She was with another female, who was dropping her off, and only expected to be with her for a couple of minutes - but it is just as well she was."

Multi-millionaire Simon has also reportedly hired an Edinburgh-based security firm to provide round-the-clock protection for Susan - who shot to fame after finishing runner-up on his talent show 'Britain's Got Talent'.
