A 32-year-old man has been charged with burglary following a break-in at Simon Cowell's mansion while he, his partner, and their baby son were asleep.

Cowell has previously spoken about how he feared for the safety of his baby son Eric after an intruder stole jewellery and cash from his home during the night-time raid last year.

Darren February has been charged with burglary after the incident which happened at the X Factor judge's house in Holland Park on December 4, 2015.

February will appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on October 5.

The incident happened just three years after the music mogul was 'shaken' after finding an intruder holding a brick in his bathroom at his west London home.
