Ms Boyle said she would like to become a foster mother at some point in the future once her career settles down, having accepted that she cannot adopt at her age.

Susan said: “When things quieten down a bit I would like to get into fostering.

“I’m 58 so I’ve got something to bring my family home to. I’ve a lovely house, why not share it?

“I’ve got a couple who think the world of me. I love kids. I’ve never had any of my own, that’s my biggest regret, but I love kids. They’re good fun to be with.

“I am happy. I am loving every minute, loving life and bring on the rest.”

The West Lothian 58-year-old also spoke of her 2012 Asperger’s diagnosis which revealed she had suffered from lack of oxygen at birth.

She added: “It wasn’t as serious as I thought and it was a great relief to me to find I was Aspergic.”
