Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has sought solace in Britain's Got Talent singing sensation Susan Boyle following his disappointing defeat in the General election.
Clegg, much like SuBo before him, experienced a massive surge of public support and media interest in the run up to the final vote, also like SuBo despite dreaming a dream, he failed in his bid and was left crushed after a run of disappointing results from up and down the country.
According to Lib Dem insiders devastated Clegg called SuBo to seek advice on how to deal with the disappointment of failing to translate media interest and public support to votes.
SuBo reportedly spent over an hour on the phone to the Lib Dem leader giving him advice. Reports that Clegg now plans to ditch politics and meet with media mogul Simon Cowell in a bid record an album are expected to be confirmed later today.
