Earlier this month it was revealed that Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle had been diagnosed with asperger syndrome (a form of autism) which explained her extreme shy behaviour at times.


The Scottish star however was relieved following the diagnosis and said:  “It was the wrong diagnosis when I was a kid. I was told I had brain damage.

She added: “It will not make any difference to my life. It’s just a condition that I have to live with and work through.

“I think people will treat me better because they will have a much greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do.”
