SINGING sensation Susan Boyle has revealed she was bullied and got the belt every day at school.

She also unveiled her new look as she prepares for the release of her debut album, I Dreamed A Dream – with pre- sales thought to be well over 100,000.

The Britain’s Got Talent star also spoke frankly about her learning difficulties.

And she admitted it took her more than six months to get over her mum’s death. She stayed at home with just her cat Pebbles for company.

Now though Susan – dubbed SuBo by the media – seems to have put all her troubles behind her and wants to become a worldwide chart-topping star.

Susan, 48, said: “I was often left behind at school because of one thing or another.
“I’m just a wee bit slower at picking things up than other people. So you get left behind in a system that just wants to rush on.

“That was what I felt was happening to me. And this feels like a good way of making up for that.
“I don’t think the resources were there for me back then at school.Teachers have more specialised training now. Full story.
