The 51-year-old singer - who shot to fame after competing on UK TV show `Britain`s Got Talent` in 2009 - wants to find a "special someone" to share her life with but insists she wouldn`t be too upset if she remains single.
She said: "Of course I`d like that special someone in my life, but I`m not going to let a man define me.
"I`ve done pretty well over the past 51 years without one but it would be nice."
However, the `I Dreamed A Dream` hitmaker - who hails from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland - won`t be turning to online dating to find a man because she is terrified of the risks.
She added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Internet dating? Are you having a laugh? Knowing my luck I`d go out on a date and you`d find my limbs scattered around various Blackburn dustbins!
"I believe in letting things happen naturally and not shopping for a man on the internet.
"If my soulmate is out there then I will find him but it won`t be on a computer."
