Susan Boyle Applies For Minimum-Wage Job at Ladbrokes Bookies

Susan Boyle has reportedly applied for a minimum wage job at her local branch of Ladbrokes bookmakers. The Scottish singer is said to be worth an estimated £20 million though she is keen on the cashiers job at Ladbrokes in Blackburn, which pays just over £6 per hour.

The 52-year-old Britain's Got Talent runner-up walked into the store on Thursday (January 23, 2013) and spoke with deputy manager David Corr regarding the vacancy.

He told The Sun on Sunday: "Susan Boyle walked into the shop and inquired about the job advertised in our window. We were all in shock."

One local resident, said: "She explained she was really keen on working there and she lives nearby.

"Obviously she doesn't need the money so I think she saw it as a way of getting her out of her house and taking her mind off things."

A spokesperson for Ladbrokes confirmed the surprising scene, telling MailOnline: "Susan came in to the shop and asked about the part-time position. She had previously applied for a job with us before she was famous.

"There must be something in the Britain's Got Talent water as [BGT judge] Alesha Dixon worked for Ladbrokes before finding fame!"
