Susan Boyle

It's been another year of firsts for Susan Boyle.

The soprano who took the world by storm in 2009 via Britain's Got Talent—and noted cheerfully during her first audition that she had "never been kissed"—is finally getting some action these days.

And she's apparently raring for more!

"I have my very first husband—which is very exciting," the 52-year-old Boyle is quoted as saying in the U.K. tabloid The Sun, referring to her role as a married woman in the British period film The Christmas Candle. "It's been a long wait."

"I had to kiss him, too, as we had a kissing scene," she said. "It was my first on-screen kiss. It was lovely. I didn't know about the kissing scene when I signed up, but I wasn't complaining.

"I won't take this any further in case I embarrass him," Boyle added, him being costar James Cosmo, who plays her hubby.

And Boyle, who's embarking on her first-ever live tour this summer, also reportedly said that she's ready to take her love life to the next level off-screen as well.

"I want to find a man but it's hard with all the traveling I do," she said, per The Sun. "I really want to start going on dates and I've asked my friends to set me up with a good man—if they can find one. I'd like to settle down one day."

Boyle could settle comfortably, too: Though she ultimately finished in second place on Britain's Got Talent, she has sold more than 19 million albums and her net worth has been reported to be as much as $30 million.

So, it also sounds like the perfect time to be in better-than-ever shape!

Boyle explained her recent slimdown: "I eat a lot of fruit and cut out the sweets. I've had to for dietary reasons. I don't want a bum like a garage. It's for my own health. I have a very sweet tooth, I love chocolate."

May she soon be substituting chocolate with far sweeter things.
