Susan Boyle has said she is looking for love.

The 51-year-old singer who rose to fame after competing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, revealed that she wants to find a “special someone” to share her life with.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: ''Of course I'd like that special someone in my life, but I'm not going to let a man define me.

''I've done pretty well over the past 51 years without one but it would be nice.''

However, the I Dreamed a Dream singer explained that she won’t be turning to online dating to find a partner, saying: ''Internet dating? Are you having a laugh? Knowing my luck I'd go out on a date and you'd find my limbs scattered around various Blackburn dustbins!

''I believe in letting things happen naturally and not shopping for a man on the internet.

''If my soulmate is out there then I will find him but it won't be on a computer.''
