Susan Boyle has revealed she still takes the bus because she doesn't want people to think fame has changed her.

The 52-year-old Scottish singer admitted to OK! magazine that her life has completely changed since Britain's Got Talent propelled her to fame in 2009, but she hasn't let it go to her head.

Susan said: "Life professionally has changed immeasurably. I've had the most brilliant four years and I don't want it to end. I've met some amazing people, sung with true superstars, travelled the world and had a ball.

"However, at home when I close the front door, I'm still the same old Susan.

"I like to take the bus and do my own food shopping. I still live in the house I grew up in. That way I'm able to control changes.

"I don't want anybody thinking I've got too big for my boots."

Despite admitting being in the spotlight can be tough at times, Susan insists she wouldn't change a thing.

She said: "It's changed for the better without a shadow of a doubt. I'm loving every moment of it. Yes, you have wobbles still and worry it's going to end or you're not good enough, but those are few and far between.

"An additional bonus is that now I don't have to worry about how I'm going to pay the gas and electric bills."
