Susan Boyle marks the milestone year today, however all plans have been put on the back burner due to the pandemic. The singer, who found fame on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, has revealed that she has no plans to retire, as she reaches the big 6-0.

Susan hopes she can throw a big party to celebrate when restrictions finally lift, as this is her second birthday in lockdown.

The performer from Blackburn, West Lothian, said she will keep singing for as long as she can.

“It’s quite a milestone, I’m surprised I’ve reached it!

“When they start sending you things like bus passes you think, ‘Wait a minute’. But it’s like any other birthday — exciting,” she said in a new interview.

Susan, who threw a big bash for her 50th birthday, went on to say that Covid had put a stop to her plans to celebrate this week, but she hopes to have a party when it’s all over.

She went on to reassure fans that she was not about to quit music any time soon, as she loves what she does.

“I’m definitely not retiring, that’s for sure,” she said.

“Look at one of my idols Elaine Paige, she’s 73 and still performing,” Susan pointed out.

“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 told The Scottish Sun.

Not performing has been one of the most difficult parts of lockdown for Susan.

She said singing was good for her mental health and made her happy.

During lockdown, she has been shielding, as she is in the high risk category due to suffering from type 2 diabetes.

She has been in a bubble with her brother John and personal assistant Geraldine.

Instead of hitting the stage, the BGT finalist has been singing to her vocal coach via video call.

She hopes to make a new record and tour again in the future, when things finally return to some sort of normality.

Earlier this month, the songstress received her first dose of the Covid vaccine.

The “grateful” star thanked the NHS and the scientists behind the vaccine.

“It feels like we have turned a corner,“ she added.

Susan is now looking forward to being reunited with her extended family to celebrate her birthday and give them all a cuddle.

“I’ve missed more than anything, just being able to give a good hug to those you love,” she said.
