She has become one of the most recognised people in the world over the last twelve months, but Susan Boyle still has her feet firmly on the ground.
The 48-year-old has turned down an offer from Simon Cowell for her to go on holiday.
Music mogul Simon offered the singer an all-expenses paid break to help her get over the shock of finding an intruder at her home.
"She said it was a sweet offer but wanted to stay at home, and if she changed her mind, she would call him," a source reveals.
Security has been increased outside Susan's West Lothian home in case of any further break-ins.
"I want this person to be found and put my mind at ease," Susan has reportedly said.
