Susan Boyle's life transformed into a stage musical

Susan Boyle leapt from obscurity to worldwide acclaim in just a few days, after her appearance on a TV talent show went viral on the internet.

Now, Elaine C Smith will portray the singer in a stage musical based on her life story.

Boyle, who will appear as herself during the finale of I Dreamed A Dream, told the BBC's Lizo Mzimba that the story has a "magical appeal".

The show will premiere at Newcastle's Theatre Royal.
