Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle believes she felt the spirit of Elvis Presley when she recorded his track Oh Come All Ye Faithful.

The 52-year-old Scottish singer is convinced his ghost paid her a visit while she was performing the track in the studio.

Boyle said: "I do sometimes feel his presence when I sing the song. I think he would be excited if he heard it and he liked it."

Susan further explained that Simon Cowell contacted Elvis' widow Priscilla Presley to get permission to record the track.

Contact Music further quote Boyle as saying: "My dad and my whole family were Elvis fans and she [Priscilla] gave me permission."

Susan's version of O Come All Ye Faithful will be released on December 8.
