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.

Piers Morgan has jumped to the defence of Susan Boyle, describing how the Britain’s Got Talent star has been in ‘floods of tears’ as the pressures of fame have taken their toll.

Speaking this morning on LBC 97.3 radio, Morgan called for the media to go easy on the church volunteer, who’s suffered a backlash this week after being accused of a foul-mouthed rant witnessed by guests at the Wembley Plaza Hotel, and then publicly losing her temper in the lobby.

Following the latter incident, Boyle was photographed speaking to two police officers, leading her publicist to issue a statement stating, ‘The police were escorting a journalist from the premises who had been winding Susan up. Susan and her sister were talking to the police telling them what had happened.’

Now Morgan has spoken out about the intense media attention Boyle has received, calling her ‘an incredibly sweet, nice, gentle person who has been propelled through this show.’

The judge described, ‘Anybody who has gone through that incredible transformation is going to be feeling the most unbelievable pressure… you could see the nerves almost crippling her on the semi-final show and I just think it’s time that everyone slightly backed off.’

He added, ‘Knowing her as I do, she’s been incredibly upset this week. She’s been in floods of tears.’

As for the reported hotel outburst, and Morgan described reports as ‘massively exaggerated.’

With a final message to the singer, dubbed the Hairy Angel, he added, ‘You know what, Susan, all you have to concentrate on now is doing an amazing performance on Saturday. You’re the red-hot favourite. There are people who want you to fail.’

The final of Britain’s Got Talent takes place this Saturday
