Susan Boyle surprised young fans near her home in Scotland on Saturday (26Jun10) by appearing as the guest of honour at a local fete.
The singing sensation turned out for the Children's Gala Day, in Polbeth, West Lothian, delighting the crowds by signing autographs and posing for pictures.
Boyle also took centre stage at the event by crowning 11-year-old Chloe MCCondochie the Gala Queen.
The youngster's father Stephen tells Scotland's Daily Record, "Susan made the children's day. She's such a massive star now - we were all amazed she turned up."
