A tribute to her "smarts" below...
The 47-year-old Scot raised eyebrows when she told a British television audience on Saturday that she'd "never been kissed."
"It was said as a joke, not an advert. Can we move on?" Boyle said, laughing. And as for the flood of attention -- with fans and even competition judge Piers Morgan offering to give her a peck -- Boyle said she's flattered, but isn't letting herself be carried away.
"If people want to kiss me, it has to be controlled," she said, still chuckling.
