The Britain's Got Talent singer notches up her half century on April Fool's Day
Susan Boyle celebrated her 50th birthday on Friday at a country house hotel with family and friends.
Simon Cowell was unable to join the 150 guests at the bash in Blackburn, West Lothian, but is reported to have sent Susan a £20,000 Cartier necklace.
‘Susan had the night of her life,’ an insider tells the Sunday Mirror. ‘She didn’t stop smiling.’
The Britain’s Got Talent star has earnt a £10million fortune since she found fame on the show in 2009.
Single Susan likes to stick to a £300-a-week allowance but has treated herself to a new house and earlier this year splashed out on a £23,000 people carrier – even though she can’t drive.
The talented singer, who now employs a housekeeper, enjoys the services of a chauffeur, too.
‘I don’t want a credit card, oh no!’ Susan has admitted.
‘I’d be like a baby in a sweet shop. Come off it. I’m happy the way I am. I’ve never been a big spender anyway.
‘It’s nice, all the luxury. But it’s nicer to stay grounded. I
need my roots.’
