A BRITAIN'S Got Talent contestant says exhausted runner-up Susan Boyle will make a recovery in weeks to take the world by storm.
Gold-toothed Beckenham rapper, DJ Talent, 30, real name is Anthony Ghosh, claims he became best friends with the 48-year-old on the ITV show and offered her advice on how to survive in showbiz.
She has been recovering at the Priory Clinic in north London since suffering a breakdown after last Saturday's final, watched by over 18 million people.
Mr Ghosh said: "Susan was pushed to the limit and the stress got to her. Within weeks she was invited to meet the President and could have sung in front of the Queen. But she will bounce back, we're relying on her.
"I was her best friend on the show and I would try and mentor her. She had the most press out of anyone, she was the star. The whole world knew who she was - she was big in the USA and she just wasn't used to it.
"She was full of joy but she wasn't a very materialistic person, she came from a very simple background in Scotland. She invited me to go and I will."
Mr Ghosh rebuffed allegations that television bosses could have done more to prevent her breakdown.
He said: "The show was fantastic. They gave everyone loads of support and told us how to deal with things. "They couldn't have done anymore. Susan is a really nice lady who just needs a chill-out and have a bit of R and R.
"It's a nervous breakdown but it will be a short one. She's on the road to recovery and will be fine in a few weeks.
