Missing Stars: Susan Boyle

This week's Missing Stars finds us looking for Susan Boyle. The Scottish singer who rose to A-list celebrity status in an instant with her appearance on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year.

Now I'm sure everyone knows the Susan Boyle journey, so let's cut it right down to the pointy end.

She was tipped to win the competition right up until the final week when reports of jealousy over other contestants ran through the media started to give her a bit of a bad name resulting in her losing the competition to British dance act 'Diversity' much to the shock of the public and herself.

Days after the show, Boyle went into meltdown and had a stint in rehab recovering from the trauma of losing the competition.

I honestly think Boyle got a bit big for her boots and let the attention go to her head in the end. Treating the media with no respect, she made out she was the biggest star on the planet and when the competition result didn't go her way she couldn't handle it and now appears to have gone into hiding. So what is she doing you ask? It's believed Boyle is working on an album due out for the Christmas rush, we all know she will be successful because of her journey, but did success enter her head too soon?

I'd love to hear your comments and for any suggestions on next weeks 'Missing Stars'.
