Singing sensation Susan Boyle has seen off competition from actor Ewan McGregor to be named Scot of the Year. Boyle enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame after footage of her audition on U.K. TV show "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009 spread across the internet and made her an overnight star.

She has since enjoyed two number one records in both Britain and the U.S., and was named Sony's highest-selling international artist earlier this week. The unlikely pop idol has now earned a much more personal honor - she's been voted Scotland's star of the year for 2010.

She received a 95 per cent share of the public vote, ahead of disgraced Scottish politician Tommy Sheridan, who is facing a jail term for perjury, in second place with three per cent. McGregor was third with two per cent in the ScotsCare survey.
