Despite earlier doubts, the Britain’s Got Talent runner-up is more hopeful than ever about performing in the first show in Birmingham because she has round-the-clock support from private GP Dr Sarah Lotzof to ensure she doesn’t have a relapse.

Boyle spent five days at The Priory, a clinic which specializes in mental health, before being allowed to leave yesterday (June 8).

It’s also been reported that 46-year-old Demi Moore and actor husband Ashton Kutcher, 31, are prepared to pay Boyle £30,000 ($US38,500) to perform at their Hollywood party in September.

Boyle shot to fame on the British-style version of American Idol when judges and the audience were stunned by her performance of I Dreamed a Dream from the musical Les Miserables.

Despite finishing second in the television talent show, it has been predicted that Boyle could earn as much as £8 million ($US13 million) from deals in the US including a recording deal and shares of album sales, a Hollywood movie of her rags to riches life, a book deal and millions more from image rights, endorsements and television appearances.
