The I Dreamed A Dream singer also touched on how she will be spending Christmas Day this year, which will be watching the “sheer joy” on her friends and families faces.
“My perfect Christmas Day is the same every year and I enjoy it immensely,” gushed Susan.
“I normally end up visiting a number of family and friends and having one too many Christmas dinners.”
She continued: “I love spending time with my friends and their families, especially with young children around, that’s what it’s all about; the children and watching the sheer joy on their faces when they are opening their Christmas gifts, or the utter horror at some gifts.”
Meanwhile, Susan has teased some exciting news as she revealed her life story will be turned into a movie.
According to the Daily Record, a new film company has picked up the rights to Susan’s 2010 autobiography The Woman I Was Born To Be and will approach the likes of Netflix and Amazon.
It was previously reported back in 2012 a film about her life would be released, with Meryl Streep as a contender to play the singing sensation.
Susan told the publication: “It’ll be an adaptation of the book and it’s being made into a TV film or Netflix film. It’s to come out very soon. It’s going to be very good.

Speaking about why the film is taking so long, she chimed: “It takes a while to negotiate a film.”
Since Susan’s return to the stage, she has appeared as a contestant in America’s Got Talent: The Champions earlier this year.
