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!"

The shows begin at the Liverpool Empire on March 22 before heading to York, Manchester, Newcastle, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, London and others.
