Susan Boyle has ‘grown up’ and no longer has a crush on Piers Morgan.

The I Dreamed A Dream singer previously revealed that ‘Piersy baby’ was the whole reason she auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent back in 2009, explaining: ‘I saw there were auditions in Glasgow for Britain’s Got Talent and decided to give it a go – and, also, because I had a wee crush on a man called Piers Morgan who was a judge on the show.’

Unfortunately for Piers, the 60-year-old has now moved on.

SuBo was reunited with BGT judge Amanda Holden live on air with Heart Breakfast, and the pair discussed Susan’s iconic audition.

Amanda, 50, said: ‘It changed everything. I’ve always said, other television shows try and recreate the moment that we had with Susan, and they can’t do it because obviously it wasn’t created in the first place, she came on stage, thought she was a stand-up comedian because she’s very funny as well, she’s got a slightly dubious taste in men, she had a crush on Piers…’

Susan quipped: ‘Who?’, with Amanda joking: ‘Exactly, that’s gone!’

The talent show host later asked: ‘You don’t fancy Piers anymore I gather?’, with Susan saying: ‘I respect him. But I don’t fancy him.’

Amanda’s co-host Jamie Theakston interrupted: ‘What!’, with Susan adding: ‘I’ve grown up a bit now!’

Sorry, Piers.

Susan became a worldwide star in 2009 when her BGT audition, singing I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, became an internet sensation, and she went on to come second to dance troupe Diversity in the contest.

Since then, Susan has released nine albums, sold 19 million records worldwide, and is worth an estimated £22million.

But that doesn’t mean she’s let the fame go to her head.
