Amanda Holden has claimed that she predicted Susan Boyle’s would have a breakdown days before it occurred even though she earlier stated ‘Susan Boyle has no underlying mental issues’

Susan Boyle was checked into The Priory rehab clinic after coming second to Diversity in the show’s final.  The shows producers later confirmed that she was “exhausted and emotionally drained”.

Reflecting on the whole event , Holden told the Daily Star: “I was worried Susan wouldn’t be able to handle it. Then, a week later she checked into The Priory. I was like Mystic Mandy.”

Susan Boyle eventually left the after five days and was instantly snapped up by Simon Cowell‘s record label. She is now currently working on her debut album.

Simon Cowell recently stated  that Susan’s breakdown came because she “didn’t know how to cope with losing”.

Susan’s brother  Gerry has agreed with the music mogul’s view, commenting: “Susan doesn’t take rejection very well. That’s not to say she doesn’t bounce back, she does. It’s a lack of confidence and a case of getting overworked up. With Britain’s Got Talent, it all just became too much.”

Sir Michael Grade has admitted that ITV did make mistakes in their handling of Britain’s Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle.

Susan became a worldwide sensation almost overnight, but was later admitted to the Priory with exhaustion after failing to win the show.

Speaking to BBC , the ITV executive chairman said: “Nobody has ever been that famous so quickly in that short space of time, within days, within hours of the show.

“She threw herself into it all and probably didn’t pace herself. I mean, we didn’t pace her well enough. There were American news networks wanting interviews with her, Japanese networks wanting interviews with her and that demand, it was pretty exhausting.

“If you were an established star used to dealing with it, you would have found it pretty exhausting, so it was a difficult time for her dealing with all this stuff.

“But it was just an extraordinary situation and why shouldn’t she enjoy her success? She’s waited all her life.”

Show judge Simon Cowell recently recognised that he had made errors in his treatment of Susan Boyle.

Gordon Brown Britain’s Got Talent is really interesting

Gordon Brown has said that Britain’s Got Talent is an “interesting” programme that could hint at the future of the country.

The Prime Minister told The Guardian that the show gives people with talent an opportunity to benefit from their qualities.

Brown said: “I think Britain’s Got Talent is really interesting. What annoyed me when I was at school was that there were lots of people with obvious ability who could’ve benefited from opportunities and were told: ‘It’s not for people like you.’

“And now they’ve got more open ways of coming forward. Surely the future for our country is more that Britain has got talent than it is that Britain is a broken society.”

He suggested that Simon Cowell is liked by people because of his honesty as a judge of talent.

The Prime Minister has publicly praised this year’s winners Diversity and sent a congratulatory letter to Alexandra Burke when she won last year’s X Factor.

Susan Boyle is reportedly desperate to perform at Wembley on the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

The singer, who finished second in this year’s competition, had been a doubt for today’s London show after pulling out of previous dates on the UK tour.

Speaking to The Mirror, a spokesperson for the star said: “Susan’s still very tired, but she is really excited about the show and can’t wait to get back on stage.

“If she were told she couldn’t perform it would break her heart.”

Boyle recently completed a stint in the Priory clinic after complaining of physical and mental exhaustion following her experience on the ITV1 show.

It had previously been suggested that the 48-year-old would only perform at a select number of shows on the tour in order to conserve her energy for recording her debut LP.

Slipknot star ‘obsessed’ with Susan Boyle

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has admitted that he is obsessed with Susan Boyle.

The rock star described Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent audition as “incredible” and admitted that he was mesmerised when he first saw it.

“Susan Boyle is incredible. Somebody told me about the show and I said, ‘I have got to see this – ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, are you kidding me?'” Contactmusic quotes Taylor as saying.

“I put it on and she was fantastic. The people on that panel were in tears! When Susan leans into it, she’s great.”

Taylor, who hails from Des Moines, Iowa, added that recent press focus on Boyle’s health problems was unnecessary.

“She’s a little bit crazy, but aren’t we all? Anyone who’s worth their salt is a little bit bent out of shape,” he said.

Slipknot released their fourth studio album All Hope Is Gone in August 2008.

Piers Morgan: ‘Susan Boyle is fine’

Susan Boyle Biggest star on planet

Piers Morgan has said that Susan Boyle is “mentally fine” and will play a number of dates on the ongoing Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

Ahead of Boyle’s performance last night in Glasgow, Morgan told BBC HARDtalk that it was the attention of the media and not the reality talent show that had resulted in the singer’s admission to The Priory.

Morgan said: “She did three great shows and is now having a rest and she’ll be back for a few more shows. Susan’s fine.

“Susan Boyle’s fine. She has always been, in my view, mentally fine. The problems she found difficult as anybody would was this incredible worldwide attention.”

He added: “What I find even more hypocritical is that the broadcast media, and broadsheet media as well, they want to cover this story and the best way of covering it and to get the acres of publicity that you want for ratings is to somehow try and turn it into something more sinister than it was.”

Kelly Clarkson ‘Boyle critics are vicious’

Kelly Clarkson has spoken out in defence of Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle.

The ‘I Do Not Hook Up’ star, who won the first series of American Idol, admitted to GMTV that she empathised with Boyle because of their similar backgrounds.

“She’s from a small town, I’m from a smaller town, it takes time to be like, ‘Wow, some people are really mean’,” she explained.

“But you have to focus on the people that are really positive around you.”

She added: “I think every person who goes through this – right at the beginning it’s very hard, it’s hard on you. Because people can be vicious, I mean especially with her. I’ve heard nothing but horrible things people say about her.”

Clarkson previously admitted to “bawling” when she first heard Boyle’s “beautiful” rendition of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ from Les Miserables
