Hollie Steel was a Serious Competitor of Susan Boyle to win BGT 2009

Hollie Steel singing on BGT tourHollie Steel has been mentioned several times in the unauthorized biography, “Susan Boyle, Dreams Can Come True”, that was published last week.
One of Hollie’s loyal American fans, Mick,  saw a copy in his local bookstore and skimmed through it to see if there were any references to Hollie. In fact, she was mentioned several times, principally as a serious competitor of Susan Boyle to win BGT 2009.
However, Mick is less complimentary about the author’s research skills.
“The author, Alice Montgomery, was content to perpetuate a popular canard, namely, that Hollie accused Simon Cowell of being a bully.”
Yes, there was a report in the press where Hollie was said to have labelled Simon Cowell a bully. However, Hollie has refuted this story several times but this does not stop the tale being repeated endlessly as though it were true.
Perhaps somebody should write an official Hollie Steel biography to set the record straight. Hmmm, I’ve never written a book before, this could be a first…

I’ve never meat anyone famus, I did meet 2 guys that almost became famus “which I just happen to remember”, I forgot their names, it was so long ago when I was a teen in the early 1980s. Take care Hollie.

    Dear Hollie Bee,

    Greetings from America. I am very excited that you are visting us this summer. I hope you can take time off to do some sightseeing. We are trying to find a venue for you in Orlando so that your family can visit Disney World at the end of the tour. Universal Studios is just down the road. They plan to open Harry Potter World this spring.It takes at least a week to see all of the parks, magic kingdom, EPCOT, Disney Studios, and Animal Kingdom in Disney World and universal studio, islands of adventure, and wizarding world of Harry Potter at Universal resort. My two favourite attractions are Splash Mountain and the Haunted Mansion both at magic kingdom.

    To set the record straight, Susan didn’t actually write the book. It was unauthorized so She actually had nothing to do with it. I hope Susan and Simon will both attend your album launch at the Roundhouse.

    Thank you for writing to us in America.

    Bye Mick

    That would be really great to see Hollie & in Orlando. Orlando is not too far only about 150 miles about 3 1/2 – 4 hr drive from Cape Coral. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Orlando & the parks, I think the last time was in 2005 or 2006. I enjoy all the parks I’ve been to so far. To name a few Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, MGM Studios, Blizzard Beach, Universal Studios & so on. I’ve haven’t been to every single park, but they’re fun.

    Greatings from Nick
