‘Pop Star to Opera Star’ is the ITV1 show where the pair will join together. Artists will compete against each other in the format I am sure we are all used to by singing classical arias.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Susan has held Andrea off the top of the US charts for weeks – it’s incredible. But he holds no grudges, he joked that he ‘must sing with this amazing woman.’ “Andrea has been kept off the top of the US charts for weeks by Susan, but he holds no grudges, he even joked he ‘must sing with this amazing woman.’

Paul Potts not competing with Susan Boyle

Paul Potts has insisted that he does not regard Susan Boyle as a rival following her recent success.

Boyle has secured a strong international fanbase since making her debut on Britain’s Got Talent in April, mirroring Potts’s own experience on the ITV1 programme’s first series in 2007.

The Scottish singer is expected to soon join Potts on Simon Cowell’s record label, however the show’s original winner does not believe that they are in competition.

Speaking to Seven magazine, he explained: “We sing different styles of music. And one’s a male voice and one’s a female voice, and that makes a difference.”

Potts also revealed that he has become more ambitious since making his TV debut two years ago.

He commented: “It’s good to get a day off occasionally. But when you’re in the market, you think: ‘What could I be doing with today to become even more successful?’ You think: ‘Just get me some work. Get me a performance on a channel’. You don’t get too many opportunities and you have to grab each one, because I have to be a success if I’m going to continue to do this.”

Potts released his second album Passione earlier this month.

Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent

Simon Cowell gave a pep talk to troubled Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle this week, it has emerged.

The show’s judge was reportedly concerned for Boyle after the 48-year-old became “distraught” over the negative press she has received in recent days.

A show insider told the Daily Star: “Simon turned up to see Susan and made the whole thing very low key. She was thrilled to see him. He’s been seriously worried about her, especially in the past few days.

“It’s what any boss would do. He just had a cosy chat with her and made her laugh and assured her everything would be fine and that she needed to blot out all the silliness of this week and just focus on her performance. She’s a lot calmer now and she’s told him that she’s definitely going to be on that stage.”

Cowell confirmed: “This is like a soap opera. I have never known anything like this in my whole career. It’s crazy.”
