Susan Boyle wants to play a fairy in a pantomime.

The 53-year-old singer is desperate to land the part of a mythical being on stage because she is keen to put on a pair of wings, but the 'I Dreamed a Dream' hitmaker has admitted she would settle for the part of a pantomime villain.

She said: ''I'd love to be a fairy in a pantomime. I'd like to be the baddy. I'd love to do that yeah. I'm available for pantomime. Can you imagine me with a pair of wings?

''I plan to have a break first of all. After that, go and do another tour in Australia somewhere like that.''

Susan shot to fame when she finished second on 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009 and admits part of the reason she decided to go on the programme was because she lusted after then-judge Piers Morgan.

Speaking on ITV's 'Lorraine', she added: ''After the circumstances at home which weren't very good at the time ... I had to do something.

''I'd done auditions for TV before. I'd done 'X Factor'. I'd done an interview for them. I knew the company. I knew they did a variety show called 'Britain's Got Talent' so I thought I'd have a go at it.

''There's also another reason as well, I fancy Piers Morgan.''
