Susan Boyle, 59, has shared that it is “sad” she won’t be able to celebrate her milestone birthday this week with a big event, as current coronavirus restrictions mean all festivities have been put on hold. The Britain’s Got Talent winner had planned a huge birthday party with all of her friends and family, but due to lockdown rules not allowing large indoor gatherings, it will not be able to go ahead.

I’ll be planning a party when it’s over

The West Lothian-based superstar explained how she would be swapping a large celebration with family and friends for a more intimate gathering with those in her social bubble.

Susan is hoping she will be able to plan a big party in the future to celebrate turning 60.

She told The Sun: “There’s not a lot I can do because of Covid but I’ll be planning a party when it’s over.

“And I’m definitely not retiring, that’s for sure.

“Look at one of my idols Elaine Paige, she’s 73 and still performing. I love what I do and want to keep doing it so long as the public enjoys it.

“I’m going to hang on for dear life to what I do.”

Susan has adhered to all lockdown guidelines over the past year as she is in the high risk category due to suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

She shared: “I’ve not been able to do too much. But that will change later, I’m always an optimist.”

Having diabetes has seen Susan remain indoors frequently, as she refused to take “any chances”.

The star has tried to remain active during this tough time and has gone for long walks while wearing a mask.

However, she admitted it has been a “tough” year, as many people have remained inside due to three separate national lockdowns happening to prevent the rapid spread of coronavirus.

Keeping things in perspective, Susan added: “We’ve not been asked to battle on the frontlines of a war like our parents or grandparents — we’ve been asked to stay at home for the safety of ourselves and everyone else.”

Susan rose to fame over 12 years ago, when she became a household name after her Britain’s Got Talent audition.

Her incredible version of I Dreamed A Dream on the show has since been watched by over 680 million people.

In her first year of fame, Susan made £5million with the release of her album I Dreamed a Dream and its singles, I Dreamed a Dream and Wild Horses.

The success was continued with her second studio album, The Gift (2010), where she became only the third act ever to top both the UK and US album charts twice in the same year.

As of 2021, Boyle has sold 19million records, and has an estimated net worth of £22million.

But despite her success, Susan still remains in her former council house and says the most important thing to her is her childhood “memories”.

She told OK! Magazine: “It’s to do with the memories of your house and your upbringing, you need to take stock of things and maybe see where you come from and where your roots lie.

“It’s best to be grounded and with your roots. It keeps you grounded and prevents you from saying things maybe you shouldn’t say.”
