LONDON (AP) The brother of talent-show contestant Susan Boyle says the singer has left a mental health care facility and is doing better.
Gerry Boyle told GMTV Friday that his sister had been released from the London clinic.
She was admitted Sunday, after coming in second place in the 'Britain's Got Talent' television show.
Gerry Boyle says his sister suffered from an anxiety attack but now seems "a lot more like herself."
In eight weeks, Boyle went from the quiet life of a church volunteer in a small town in Scotland to global fame.
Actor Danny Dyer, who appears in the upcoming British comedy horror 'Doghouse', was pleased to hear she'd checked out of hospital and gave his own opinion on being in the spotlight:
"Let me tell you now, fame can turn you a little bit mad anyway. You constantly feel that you're being watched all the time and people recognise you when they are not even recognising you, so I can't imagine what's going through that poor lady's mind and, you know, she struggled with it and I wish her all the best, I really do. I hope she comes through it, I hope we don't hear stories that she's topped herself (killed herself) or something, because it'll be the press' fault."
Dyer acknowledges that his own fame is nowhere near Boyle's current status but says the paparazzi are a force to be reckoned with:
"You go round to the shop to buy a bit of shampoo, you know what I mean? It's on you constantly - like Amy Winehouse is another one who I think is incredibly talented but the pressure of this fame thing and constantly being in the tabloids for just no reason has just got to make you go insane. How do you deal with it?"
