Susan Boyle has confirmed the reason for her long absence from the spotlight

British singing sensation Susan Boyle has revealed she suffered a minor stroke last year which put her future performances in doubt.

According to reports in the Daily Mirror, the 62-year-old, who found international fame after competing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, returned to the hit show this year for a performance alongside the cast of Les Misérables.

Fittingly, Boyle gave a rendition of I Dreamed A Dream – the same song she first auditioned with all those years ago – and received a standing ovation from the audience in the Eventim Apollo.

Yet it was after her on-stage exploits that she spoke candidly on something that has drawn plenty of attention today.

Speaking with show hosts Ant and Dec, Boyle gave a reason for her relatively sudden disappearance from the showbiz circuit, explaining that she’s been contending with a rather serious health issue.

Following her performance, one of the interviewers said:

“It’s hard to believe that you appeared on this show in 2009, 14 years ago.

“How does it feel to be back at BGT?”

To which Boyle responded: “It feels great. It’s really good.

“It’s extra special for me actually, last April there, I suffered a minor stroke and I thought it’d be crazy to be back on stage and I have done it.”
