Susan Boyle had to overdub some of her lines in The Christmas Candle

Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle had to overdub some of her lines in upcoming festive movie The Christmas Candle because her accent is too thick.

The 52-year-old Scottish singer explained that she was concerned that her dialect would be too strong for viewers to understand.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the I Dreamed A Dream singer said: "My Scottish accent was a bit thick in places so I had to re-record some of my lines so you wouldn't need subtitles. Note to self, must enunciate more."

The film, which is based on the novel by best-selling author Max Lucado, is due to hit the big screen later this year.
