No makeover for Susan Boyle, says Amanda Holden
Overnight the whole world seems to have been touched by Susan Boyle, the little-known Scottish woman with a voice as big as all get-out, who floored the judges on Britain's Got Talent. With over 20 million views on YouTube, questions over whether the show will do the usual TV thing and makeover Susan have been rebuffed by judge, Amanda Holden.
"I won't let Simon Cowell take her to his dentist and I certainly won't let her near his hairdresser," Holden told The Mirror.
"She needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her. She just looks like anybody who could live on your street.
"The minute we turn her into a glamour-puss is when it's spoilt. That can perhaps come later when she's signed the album deal and conquered America.
"For now we'll keep her exactly as she is because that's why we've all fallen in love with her. I think it's the underdog thing. It's somebody who's looked after her mother all her life. She's had real dreams, real aspirations and obviously she thought she'd had to say goodbye to those things."
I'm sure Trinny and Susannah will be bitterly disappointed.
