Susan Boyle reticent on costume-fitting trip ahead of semi final

Thursday May 14, 2009

In a little over a month Susan Boyle has become one of the most talked about people on the planet. And that is going to take a little getting used to for the shy church volunteer from West Lothian (pictured recently at home in Scotland).

Hot on the heels of her interview with Oprah Winfrey, on Tuesday Susan was back to focusing on competing in Britain's Got Talent, the talent show that propelled her to fame. She flew to London for costume fittings ahead of the May 23 semi-finals.

And as photographers captured her every move, it became apparent Susan is not 100 per cent comfortable with her new found fame.  

Having touched down at Heathrow following a £77 economy flight from Edinburgh the 48-year-old became flustered by the paparazzi waiting at the airport and was quickly whisked away to the studios in a blacked-out people carrier, reports the Mail

Emerging later with a new reddish tint to her hair and some subtle makeup, Susan declined to speak to reporters before heading back to the airport and a 9pm flight home
