Britain’s Got Talent star Jamie Pugh fears successMay 4th, 2009 - 2:43 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 4 (ANI): Britain’s Got Talent star Jamie Pugh has in an interview revealed that just the thought of winning the TV contest leaves him quaking in his shoes.
Pugh, 38, who is a pizza deliveryman, panicked before his audition and wanted to walk out, but his loyal partner Donna Davies, 35, persuaded him to stay.
“I wanted to go home,” the Mirror quoted him as saying.
“I didn’t sleep for three days before and I’m now on 40 fags a day.
“This is going to sound really weird - I fear success but I don’t fear failure. I’ve failed at a lot of things and I fear success because I’m Jamie. I’ve got to appear on a TV show and I’m dreading it.
“I’m a wreck - I’m not a star,” he exclaimed.
More than 12 million viewers saw the South Wales valleys singer stun judge Simon Cowell and earn a standing ovation with a spellbinding version of Bring Him Home from Les Miserables.
“If you had asked me to sing any other song I wouldn’t be able to, because I don’t know many songs,” Jamie said.
“But Bring Him Home comes from my heart. It’s about what I might have lost through choices I’ve made.
“Believe me - if I’d not sung that song I would have gone to pieces,” he added. (ANI)
