Susan Boyle still lives in the same council house despite earning millions from her career after Britain's Got Talent.
The 62-year-old Scottish singer sky-rocketed to fame after shocking the nation with her incredible musical talent back in 2009 on the third series of the show.
She didn't take home the winning title sadly, instead coming in as a runner-up.
But now a household name and with a whole bunch of accolades behind her, Susan has decided to remain in her childhood home regardless of her huge fame and fortune.
Susan became hugely popular after singing a beautiful rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' from Les Misérables, which left judge Amanda Holden - along with most of the audience - in tears during her audition.
She went all the way through to the final and eventually lost to street dance group, Diversity.
The singer has since gone on to release the UK's best-selling album at the time and will shortly be touring the world, however, some things in her life haven't altered one bit.
And now 14 years on from that fateful day, Susan still lives in the very home she grew up in.
Residing in Bathgate, Scotland, Susan opened up her home to OK! Magazine in 2021 to give her fans an inside-tour to her life beyond the stage.
According to the outlet, her lounge still has a 'very traditional feel' to it given its 'dark wood finish' and 'grey decor'.
It seems the grey colour palette is definitely a recurring thing in the room, with an armchair, fluffy rug and feature walls all following suit.
And slap-bang in the middle of the living room is an ornate fireplace which is 'decorated with a series of trinkets'.
Such trinkets include a pair of matching cat ornaments, candleholders and a diffuser.
And it seems that the trinkets don't stop there as Susan has also set up a trio of cat figurines in a window alcove.
Definitely gives it a homely feel.
The house has had a bit of a makeover in recent times, but Susan still remembers what it used to look like.
When standing in her brand-new kitchen, she remarked: "It was a tiny kitchen before, there was a big round table, four chairs and a cooker.
"You had to really watch what you were doing."
But she has definitely added her own touch as the outlet also said that Susan had added 'a bit of glamour to the space with a gorgeous chandelier style floor lamp and silver striped wallpaper'.
She told the magazine: "It’s to do with the memories of your house and your upbringing, you need to take stock of things and maybe see where you come from and where your roots lie.
"It’s best to be grounded and with your roots. It keeps you grounded and prevents you from saying things maybe you shouldn't say."
Home sweet home indeed.
