Britain's Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle will not be quitting the competition, say programme bosses.

Lots of reports suggested that she is not coping with the pressure of the competition and her new found fame.

Susan became known around the world after wowing judges at her audition with her version of I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables.

A massive 17 million people are expected to tune in to the final on Saturday evening.

Judge Piers Morgan said that Susan was thinking of quitting the show to escape all the attention.

But a spokeswoman for Britain's Got Talent said that was not the case.

"She just wants to focus on her performance, and the well-being of our contestants is our number one priority," she added.

So far eight acts are through to the final. Two more will be chosen in Friday's fifth and final semi-final.

In addition to Susan Boyle the finalists include two urban dance groups; two solo singers; a grandfather and grandaughter singing duo; a saxophonist and Stavros Flatley - a father and son dancing duo.
