Paul Potts has battled a burst appendix, a huge tumor on his adrenal gland, and a shattered collarbone after being knocked off his bike.

Paul faced another hurdle when he took part in Simon Cowell's new search-for-a-star show, Britain's Got Talent.

"First I burst my appendix, then they found a 10cm benign tumour which had to be removed and just as I'd recovered, I was knocked off my bike, shattering my collarbone. It meant I had to take quite a lot of time out from singing but it's nice to have another shot at it."

The 36 year old singer from Port Talbot, Wales, wowed the judges, Simon Cowell (The X Factor, American Idol), Amanda Holden (actress), and Piers Morgan (ex-tabloid newspaper editor, author, presenter).

Wearing a "cheap Tesco suit" and with his hair cut too short, Paul admits the panel of judges weren't initially impressed. But when he sang the famous opera song, Nessun Dorma, he blew them away.

Paul Potts said, "I don't think they were expecting very much. I'm a bit short and overweight and had a cheap old suit on and the hairdresser had used a number two on my hair instead of a four so it made me look a bit bald.

"But when I sang, I made sure I looked at the judges and I saw Simon Cowell's jaw drop. I knew then I must have done alright."

Britain's Got Talent is searching for an act to perform in front of The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance and win a £100,000 prize.

Paul received a standing ovation from the 2,000-strong audience at Cardiff's Millennium Centre and potts (!) of praise from the hard-to-please judges.

Post for Pottsy! The Passion of The People sings out for Paul Potts. The People's Hero.
