Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle will receive her biggest birthday present next month– a £4million pay cheque.
Subo, who was unknown less than a year ago, will celebrate turning 49 on April 1 by becoming a multi-millionairess. The payout comes from her worldwide appearances and sales of her chart-topping debut album, I Dreamed A Dream which went platinum in six countries.
It broke the British charts’ record for the fastest-selling debut album in history, with 3.1 million bought in its first month. Elsewhere she has sold more than 8.5 million copies.
A source said: “Every day Susan wakes up having to pinch herself. She cannot believe how the public has taken her to their hearts everywhere.
"She has not wanted for anything since finding fame and now she will reap the benefit of her hard work.
