Susan Boyle has said she dreams of becoming bigger than The Beatles some day.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the chart topper said: “The Beatles are still around now, their records live on. I hope to be in the same calibre one day."

Susan is adamant she isn't taking her fame for granted: “I'm always so touched by my fans. They give me amazing support on both sides of the Atlantic.

"They even still take pictures of me where I live back home on the street. But if they didn't do that I'd probably worry. I'd think 'what have I done wrong?'”

Susan admits she has become such a celebrity that she cannot take the bus anymore in her home town of Blackburn, West Lothian in Scotland.

"When I go on buses there are always problems with people going, 'Oh, there's that lass, she used to be on the telly'.

"It's just too much so I'm getting a people carrier and my family and friends can drive me around," she added.
