Boyle 'overwhelmed' by fans turnout

Susan Boyle signs copies of her new CD Standing Ovation at HMV Glasgow

Susan Boyle told fans she was "overwhelmed" by their turnout as she signed copies of her new album in the city where she first shot to stardom.

The 51-year-old singer posed for pictures and spoke to more than 100 fans who had queued outside HMV in Glasgow to meet her and collect copies of Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage.

Susan came to the nation's attention when her performance at a Britain's Got Talent audition was broadcast in 2009. Her debut album went on to become the UK`s biggest selling debut of all time.

Fan Maureen McGeorge queued for an hour to meet the singer and was "very, very excited".

She said: "Not that I haven't seen Susan before, I`m a big fan but it's always exciting to meet her, she`s wonderful.

"When I went up to her she said 'there's a face I know' she gets to know her fans and she`s very good with them and gives it the personal touch, I just love her to bits.

"I got four copies of the new album, three for friends in America who are big fans and one for me, obviously."

The album contains a number of duets and Ms McGeorge is particularly fond of Susan's pairing with her idol.

"My favourites are the songs with Donny Osmond because I think you can tell how much Susan enjoys it. She`s said before he's her lifelong idol and I think we all still love Donny."
