Susan Boyle was totally ready to marry Piers Morgan

Los Angeles - Susan Boyle wanted to marry Piers Morgan.

The singer developed a crush on the TV presenter while competing on Britain's Got Talent in 2009 and revealed that her ideal man would be a hybrid of Donny Osmond, Simon Cowell and Piers.

She told the Daily Mail: "My ideal man would have Donny's voice, Simon's good looks and Piers' sense of humour.

"I would have married Piers, but someone else got there first."

Piers tied the knot with Celia Walden - his second wife - in 2010.

Susan, 55, also opened up about her date with a "handsome" doctor she met in Florida last year and her disappointment that they did not embark on a relationship.

She said: "We had fish and then ice cream, just the one glass of wine.

"It was a date, it felt romantic, I had met someone nice at last.

"We kept in contact. I wish I'd kept up the relationship, but it just wasn't practical. I just felt at the time it wasn't right."

Meanwhile, Susan has a new album, A Wonderful World, but admitted she worries constantly about disappointing her fans.

She said: "Like any artist, I worry about people still liking me, I worry about going stale. I have a role to play. People have expectations of me. They see me as a pillar of society and I don't want to let them down."
