Singing sensation Susan Boyle has been taken to a private clinic suffering from exhaustion following her shock defeat in the final of "Britain's Got Talent," British media reported Monday.
TalkbackThames, the television company which makes the hit series, said the 48-year-old had been left "exhausted and emotionally drained" after Saturday's show in which she was beaten by dance act Diversity.
"Susan has been seen by her private GP (general practitioner), who supports her decision to take a few days out for rest and recovery. We offer her our ongoing support and wish her a speedy recovery," TalkbackThames said in a statement.
London's Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers had been called to a central London hotel and accompanied a woman to a clinic by ambulance, but didn't name the woman.
