Susan Boyle At Breaking Point

Susan Boyle might have the biggest selling album of 2009 and the most watched video on YouTube, but behind the scenes a completely different picture has become the reality. The 48-year-old has suffered very public melt-downs since her meteoric rise to fame over the past year, and is said to be close once again to a breakdown.

Behind the smiles and the songs, lies heartache and loneliness - something fame and money cannot buy. Her brother Gerry has spoken out saying Susan suffers from 'crushing' loneliness and fears she will never fall in love. The Britain's Got Talent star has never had a relationship and has struggled to cope with the fame since becoming a global sensation. Her brother revealed in an interview, "The one thing she wants above all everything else is love. Who doesn't? Her biggest wish is to find someone who she can share her success with and support her through the difficult times."

Susan Boyle has been afraid to sleep at her Scottish home after she arrived home several weeks ago to find an intruder inside. Security has been stepped up, yet this had added to the turmoil. Gerry said, "If I'm honest things aren't great for Susan at the moment on a personal level. She's absolutely exhausted after non-stop travelling promoting her album around the world."

Eastenders Live Viewing Figures

The live Eastenders episode was a massive winner for the BBC as 16.6 million viewers tuned in to find out who murdered Archie for the 25th anniversary special.
Viewing figures peaked as Stacey Slater confessed all as Bradley Branning fell to his death in the dramatic live episode, with the episode averaging just under 15m and another 1.42m tuning in for the repeat on BBC3 later.
Eastenders live had almost six out of every ten viewers watching the conclusion of one of soaps best kept secrets ever, easily beating rivals and producing one of the best Eastenders viewing figures in years. The Christmas Day 1986 episode of 30.15m still remains the most watched British soap as Den Watts handed divorce papers to his wife Angie.
It was also a record night for BBC3, which saw 4.3m tune in for Eastenders Live: The Aftermath. This was the highest viewed programme ever on BBC3 and a new record for a multichannel programme.
