Susan Boyle, 59, is all smiles as she gets her Covid vaccine and says ‘there’s light at the end of the tunnel’

SUSAN Boyle was all smiles as she got her Covid vaccine and said "there’s light at the end of the tunnel".

The Sun's Jabs Army supporter gave a thumbs up following her trip to the vaccine centre in West Lothian.

Susan, who turns 60 on April 1, said getting the vaccine had boosted her spirits, as she thanked the NHS and the "science" that is fighting coronavirus.

She told The Sun: "Monday felt for the first time like there is light at the end of the tunnel.

"There is so much disinformation surrounding the vaccine but I encourage you to go out and get the vaccine when it’s available to you.

"I am grateful for science and grateful for medicine and especially grateful to the wonderful NHS nurses and doctors, thank you."

Susan became one of TV's biggest ever success stories when she belted out I Dreamed A Dream on Britain's Got Talent.

In the 12 years since Susan left Simon Cowell's jaw on the floor during the audition round of the show, she has performed around the world and amassed a fortune.

But she's also kept her feet firmly on the ground and done things on her own terms.

Susan's music career is reported to have earned her £22million – but she isn't flash with her cash at all.

The star revealed to Piers Morgan that she lives off a rather more humble £300-£500 weekly allowance, calling the sum "plenty".

Susan still lives in her childhood home in Blackburn, West Lothian. She paid £111,000 to own the semi-detached ex-council house next door too, to create her dream home.

Her attachment to the property was too strong to part with, and she prefers the familiar surroundings to a posh mega mansion.

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

She previously told OK! : "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."
