Susan Boyle to be The Subject of Reality Show

Friday, September 2, 2011

SUSAN Boyle is to be the subject of a new reality TV show.

The Scottish singing sensation is to appear in a fly-on-the-wall documentary to show how little she has changed since shooting to worldwide fame after competing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, with the footage following her in her hometown of Blackburn, West Lothian, carrying out everyday tasks such as grocery shopping and attending church.

The 50-year-old star has been filmed since January and the footage includes her backstage ahead of her performance on China’s Got Talent and recording a charity duet with British comic Peter Kay.

“Despite the fact she’s had this enormous success in record sales, she wanted to show her fans she’s still the same Susan,” a source said.

“She still lives in the same house and has a normal life.

“Since the beginning of 2011, she has been filmed for a fly-on-the-wall documentary about her life.”

The program will be shown on UK station ITV1 just before the release of her new album Someone to Watch Over Me on November 7.
