SHE’S A SUBO-STAR!

But in the seven years since, what has Susan Boyle been doing and what is she doing now? Here’s what we know

Susan Boyle became an international singing sensation after her breathtaking BGT audition

What is Susan Boyle doing now?

The 55-year-old Scottish singer has had a busy career since that breath-taking Britain’s Got Talent audition.

After her debut album I Dreamed a Dream topped the charts around the world and became the UK’s best-selling debut album of all time, Susan went on to have four more Top Ten albums and sell more than 25 million records worldwide.

When did Susan release her latest album and single?

Her latest album A Wonderful World, was released in November 2016 but became her lowest-charting album in the UK to date.

Susan hasn’t released a chart single since 2014 when she covered the Secret Garden song You Raise Me Up, which was a hit for Irish boy band Westlife.

But sadly, the song didn’t chart and in fact, Susan hasn’t had a charted single since 2013 when she released the Christmas carol Oh Come All Ye Faithful, a posthumous duet with Elvis Presley, but that only got to number 48.

Is she still signed to Simon Cowell’s record label SyCo?

Some news reports in September 2016 suggested Susan was terrified that the music mogul would give her axe after her last album bombed.

But Cowell gave her a new multi-album contract in November 2016 even after her album released that month bombed.

But that same month, the singer also revealed her gears she may never sing again, not on stage anyway, due to her crippling Asperger’s Syndrome.

Where is Susan Boyle living now?

Born and bred in Blackburn, West Lothian in Scotland, home has always been where the heart is for Susan.

After winning BGT and seeing her debut album top the charts, Susan bought the four-bedroom ex-council house in Blackburn, in which she still lives now, for £65,000.

She also paid £300,000 for a brand-new five-bedroom house but found it hard to settle in so moved in her niece and moved back to the ex-council house.

How much weight has Susan Boyle lost? And how?

In November 2016, Susan revealed she had lost two stone after she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

Doctors advised the star to drop the weight for the sake of her health.

Susan cut out sweets and cakes from her daily diet to lose the weight and walked two miles away day.

What is Susan Boyle’s net worth?

The singer’s estimated net worth is £26 million – but money isn’t that important to the down-to-earth star.

She still lives in the ex-council house in her home town and the most expensive items she owns is a £300 fur coat and a bottle of Chanel No.5.

She is very generous with her fortune and donates a lot to several charities as well as using her money to help out her friends and family.

She has paid off mortgages, household bills, and debts and said she’d never see anyone she loved strapped for cash.
