Susan Boyle Susan Boyle, the 48-year-old frumpy church volunteer who has been wowing people world-wide with her performances on English television program Britain’s Got Talent, has threatened to quit.

One of the shows judges, Piers Morgan, told Inside Edition “she’s been in tears repeatedly… as of yesterday, she was packing her bags.” Boyle, he said, was finding the fame and notoriety stressful.

Today Morgan told The Early Show Boyle “even threatened to leave the show yesterday at one stage because of the sheer amount of pressure on her.”

Since her debut performance, television crews from around the world have camped outside her home in rural Scotland and newspapers have dedicated countless pages to her.

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 last month.

Last week Boyle’s performance of Memory from the musical Cats saw here garner an avalanche of tele-votes from people voting at home to beat seven other performers and advance to the final round this week.

The winner will go perform at Britain’s annual Royal Variety Show — attended by members of the royal family — and win a £100,000 ($US159,000) prize
