Sales of tickets for the long-running musical have increased by 46 per cent since Boyle performed the song in the first round of the talent show.

I Dreamed a Dream is a solo sung by character Fantine in Act 1 in the stage production of the Victor Hugo novel. Boyle’s version attracted more hits than any other You Tube clip.

Mark Bower, head of lifestyle products for lastminute.com who discovered the rise said: ” There has been a clear knock-on effect from Susan Boyle singing ‘I dreamed a dream’.

“After her performance ticket sales shot up almost overnight and have maintained a consistent level of popularity.”

Despite losing out to dance act Diversity in the Britain’s Got Talent final, Boyle is still planning to be a professional singer and her contract with the programme means she must take part in a nationwide promotional tour in the coming days .
