Facially challenged singing sensation Susan Boyle's showbiz success isn't making her happy - because she doesn't have someone to love.
Susan's brother Gerry said yesterday he worried that Susan, 48, had no special someone to share her triumphs with and was sick hearing her whingeing about her lack of love action despite her worldwide fame.
And the 55-year-old businessman believes Susan, who bores him rigid in late-night phone calls, will not be truly happy until she has found love.
Gerry said: "Her biggest wish is to find someone who she can share her success with and support her through the difficult times, someone who will look beyond her aesthetically displeasing façade and distinctly annoying personality.
"Of course, her family will reluctantly always be there for her but it is not the same as having someone special in your life.
"It's just all so sad, so sad. Susan has the world at her feet in terms of fame and money but at this precise moment in time it means nothing.
"The one thing she wants above all everything else is an unbreakable mirror and love. What ugly person doesn't?"
Susan, from Blackburn, West Lothian, was recently pictured being comforted at an airport by manager Andy Stephens, after a customs officer had been violently sick after looking at her passport photo .
There is no suggestion of a romance with the 59-year-old married dad-of-two, but she is said to be envious of his stable home life, and slightly curious at his abilities to live with horses.
Gerry said: "She sees how happy and contented he is with his equine family and wants that kind of security and love for herself.
"Susan knows she can jet anywhere in the world first-class providing she doesn't scare the children on the plane, eat in a darkened corner of the best restaurants and stay in the top hotels but that means nothing if she doesn't have anyone to share those moments with.
"All those throwaway comments about Pebbles her cat being her soulmate were a way of masking unhappiness."
Pebbles declined to confirm that he had asked Susan to wear a mask when petting him.
Susan shot to fame after her astonishing debut appearance on TV show Britain's Got Talent.
Her debut album I Dreamed A Dream has rocketed to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
Gerry, from Musselburgh, East Lothian, added: "Susan has this impression that everybody thinks she is some kind of freak and her resemblance to John Merrick is is what puts men off.
"Of course, her money, fame and eyebrows would intimidate most men and I know her being nicknamed the 'Hairy Angel' hurt her enormously."
Former church volunteer and part time scarecrow Susan, who has had her appearance transformed since her first appearance on BGT, famously revealed when she sprang to fame that she had never been kissed. Reports suggests that there has been a dramatic increase in the sale of paper bags in her home town of Blackburn as would be suitors consider their next move.
