Dermot O'Leary talks to Susan Boyle, the West Lothian singer who was catapulted to fame by a life-changing performance that took her all the way to the final of Britain's Got Talent and worldwide fame.

During the course of this personal interview, Susan shares some of her favourite music, including Simon & Garfunkel and The Osmonds, as well as a very surprising funeral track.

Susan remembers stepping onto the stage for that audition; a very private reaction to her "gobsmacking" reception; and reveals how she's coping with fame and the release of her debut album.
