Susan Boyle has spoken out about her depression and blamed it on bullying at school.

The Britain's Got Talent star says that she suffers from anger and mood swings as a result of a "hellish" childhood.

According to The Sun, the chart-topper told an Australian TV show: "I can be up and down like a yo-yo - I can be depressed - I know I'm taking a big chance telling people this but you have to be honest."

She said: "I used to be made a fool of at school.

"It was psychological bullying and that leaves a scar and it also cultivates a lot of anger.

"When people are a wee bit slow others pick at them. My life was made absolute hell."

Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan, 48, is set for a third week at the top of the charts with her new album I Dreamed A Dream.
