Susan Boyle applies for job with a bookmaker

'I Dreamed a Dream' singer Susan Boyle has applied for a job at a local bookmakers and despite being a superstar musician, a Ladbrokes spokesman has confirmed she will be "judged" fairly.

The singer sensation has shown interest in a part-time position at bookmakers Ladbrokes in Blackburn and she is said to be "really keen on" starting to work there.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "She explained she was really keen on working there and everyone knows who she is and that she lives nearby.

"The manager laughed at first. But it was clear she was being serious and they couldn't just dismiss her so gave her all the information.

"Obviously she doesn't need the money, so I think she saw it as a way of getting out of the house and taking her mid off things ... It was a totally unreal scene for a superstar multi-millionaire to be at the bookie's asking for a job that pays the minimum wage."

It turns out the 'Wild Horses' star has even applied for a job at the company before, and it is insisted she will be "judged" fairly.

A Ladbrokes spokesman said: "Every applicant is judged on their merits.

"She's applied before and it's great for us that she's still dreaming the dream."
