Susan Boyle Admits She's Ready To Find A Man And Reveals Gary Barlow Crush

She's been single all her life, but Susan Boyle has revealed she's finally ready to find herself a man and get married.

The 52-year-old 'Britain's Got Talent' star made the admission after sharing an on-screen kiss in her debut film role in 'The Christmas Candle'.

Susan and co-star James Cosmo, who plays a church warden, lock lips for a scene in the film in which she stars as his wife and she enjoyed it so much that she's now on the hunt for a real hubby.

She told The Sun: “I want to find a man but it’s hard with all the travelling I do. I really want to start going on dates and I’ve asked my friends to set me up with a good man — if they can find one. I’d like to settle down one day.”

And after kissing her screen hubby, 'Braveheart' star James, Susan says she's ready for the real thing.

“I have my very first husband — which is very exciting. It’s been a long wait.

“I had to kiss him, too, as we had a kissing scene. It was my first on-screen kiss. It was lovely.

“I didn’t know about the kissing scene when I signed up, but I wasn’t complaining.

And Susan already has her eye on a certain celeb - but unfortunately, he's married.

Gary Barlow — now there’s a man. I think he’s really cute," she said.

Earlier this year Susan spoke of her 'surreal year' in an exclusive blog for HuffPost Entertainment.

She wrote: "It has been another fantastic year- I've tried to rise to the new challenges and settle my fears that this will all be over soon.

"I'm enjoying myself more and feel that life in my career as well as in my personal life is getting better."
