She had not lost any of her wonderful stage presence or amazing vocals, which the audience applauded as she sang.After his performance, Dec Donnelly and Ant McPartlin of Britain’s Got Talent asked Boyle how it felt to be back on the show. “It is extra special for me actually because last April there, I suffered a minor stroke, and I thought it would be crazy to be back on stage, and I have done it!” said the singer.

Boyle said her return to the spotlight was difficult since she had to battle so hard to get back on stage. “And I have done it,” she continued. The singer stated that her stroke was small, but it had a significant impact because it rendered her speech nearly incomprehensible. She had to relearn how to speak effectively and receive intense vocal training in order to sing.

Boyle suffered a stroke in April 2022, according to a source. On the eve of the stroke, her personal assistant Geraldine said goodbye to her and then left. When Geraldine returned to the singer’s house in Blackburn West Lothian the next morning, she realized something was wrong. Due to her terrible entrance, the crowd and judges Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan, and Simon Cowell had already rejected Boyle.

Geraldine, who frequently went to breakfast with Boyle, drove him to the hospital. According to the source, the singer was able to walk: “…but she was slurring her sentences and had a lowered face. She could speak, but it was difficult to understand what she was saying.” The “Stand By Me” singer had to work on her garbled speech for over a year before she could talk again.

She also worked on her drooping face because she had substantial muscular weakness on one side.People were concerned that the singer, who had sold over 25 million CDs in her lifetime, might be unable to sing again after her stroke. However, the private speech therapist she hired after leaving the hospital assisted her in getting to where she is now.

Boyle has been attending a private speech therapist a few times a week, working on homework in between sessions, and working with her usual vocal coach. The insider went on to say: “She has worked very hard to get to the point where she could perform last night, although we are not quite back to where she was before the stroke.”

Her management team is likewise concerned and ensures that her engagements are spaced out because the singer’s first stroke puts her at risk of having another. Boyle, on the other hand, is upbeat and feels she will be performing more frequently in the future.According to the source, the “Memory” singer plans to go on tour in 2024. Her final tour took place in March 2020, right before the pandemic lockdown.

McPartlin replied on Britain’s Got Talent after Boyle confessed she had a stroke on stage, “Did you? We’re sorry to hear that; you’re a brave soul! Isn’t it great to see her back on stage, Simon?” Simon replied:

“Unbelievable, Susan, we owe you so much, and I knew you weren’t feeling well, but if anyone was going to return, it had to be you because we wouldn’t be the same without you!” You are incredible.”Donnelly expressed his delight at seeing Boyle again and welcoming her back home.
