A church worker from Blackburn, West Lothian, has become an international hit after appearing on Britain's Got Talent.

Susan Boyle's rendition of I Dreamed a Dream from Les MisE[umlaut]rables has received over 12 million hits on video-sharing website YouTube in less than a week.

She is already being compared to previous BGT winner, opera star, Paul Potts.

The 48-year-old Boyle, who confessed on the show she has "never been kissed", is now said to have been approached for interviews and performances as far away as the US and Australia.

BGT judge Simon Cowell is reportedly already lining up a record deal for her, and she has helped boost the song's popularity.

Boyle is already the bookmakers' favourite to win the talent show, with odds of 5/2.

Furthermore, actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have apparently lent their support to the contestant.

Kutcher posted a link to Boyle's performance on Twitter and wrote: "This just made my night".

Moore, 46, wrote a Tweet in reply saying: "You saw it made me teary!"
