Susan Boyle told fans she was "overwhelmed" by their turnout as she signed copies of her new album in the city where she first shot to stardom.

The 51-year-old singer posed for pictures and spoke to more than 100 fans who had queued outside HMV in Glasgow to meet her and collect copies of Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage.

Susan came to the nation's attention when her performance at a Britain's Got Talent audition was broadcast in 2009. Her debut album went on to become the UK`s biggest selling debut of all time.

Fan Maureen McGeorge queued for an hour to meet the singer and was "very, very excited".

She said: "Not that I haven't seen Susan before, I`m a big fan but it's always exciting to meet her, she`s wonderful.

"When I went up to her she said 'there's a face I know' she gets to know her fans and she`s very good with them and gives it the personal touch, I just love her to bits.

"I got four copies of the new album, three for friends in America who are big fans and one for me, obviously."

The album contains a number of duets and Ms McGeorge is particularly fond of Susan's pairing with her idol.

"My favourites are the songs with Donny Osmond because I think you can tell how much Susan enjoys it. She`s said before he's her lifelong idol and I think we all still love Donny."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
