Susan Boyle Applies For Cashier's Job At Bookies - Is She Craving The Simple Life?

Susan Boyle dreamed a dream of becoming a singer and now that she's achieved worldwide fame it appears Subo is craving the simple life...

The 'Britain's Got Talent' star, worth an estimated £20million, has reportedly applied for a minimum wage job as a cashier at her local bookies.

Susan read the advert for the cashier position at Ladbrokes on Thursday afternoon and entered the shop in Blackburn, Lothian, to apply for the role, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Deputy manager David Corr told the paper: "Susan Boyle walked into the shop and inquired about the job advertised in our window. We were all in shock."

A local added: "She explained she was really keen on working there and she lives nearby."

However, Subo, who has sold over 14 million records, was told she would have to apply online for the job.

Last year, Susan revealed she was wrongly diagnosed with brain damage as a child, but was "relieved" to discover she was actually suffering from Asperger syndrome.

The 52-year-old said she suffered years of bullying in an interview with The Observer.

Asperger syndrome is a form of autism which sees sufferers struggling with communication and in social relationships.

"Asperger’s doesn’t define me," she added.

"It’s a condition that I have to live with and work through, but I feel more relaxed about myself.

"People will have a greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do."
