Susan BoyleSusan Boyle has been spotted out and about in period costume.

But it’s not a change of fashion direction, the Britain’s Got Talent runner-up has donned the historic get-up to start filming her first film on the Isle of Man.

Susan, 51, stars alongside Les Miserables star Samantha Barks in John Stephenson’s historical tale The Christmas Candle, and she’s loving the new experience.

‘I can’t believe I’m making a film, I’m very excited,’ said Susan. ‘Everyone on set is a delight to work with and it’s a fantastic experience to be part of the team.

‘I’m really enjoying getting dressed in the period costumes and stepping back in time,’ she added. ‘Although it’s very cold filming on location, I’m wearing long johns under my bustle.’

The forthcoming film will also star Hans Matheson, Lesley Manville and John Hannah. We hope SuBo’s charcter gets to sing!
