An ecstatic Susan Boyle is joined by fellow Britain’s Got Talent star Jai McDowall in the first photos from inside the rehearsals for her upcoming UK tour.

In images taken during their practice sessions, the pair smile at each other.

Boyle wears a pink suit jacket and white blouse while McDowall opts for a blue collarless shirt.

She said: “I was looking forward to my tour, but getting into the studio and rehearsing and coming up with exciting new material and suggestions, I can’t wait to get back on that stage.

“I’m also looking forward to Jai joining as well. This will be an all-new show, like nothing you’ve seen me do before.”
