A former Diversity member has sadly died in a car collision in Canada.

Robert Anker was a member of the dance troupe who won Britain's Got Talent in 2009. He was involved in the crash in Ontario, Canada.

It was reported that Essex-born Robert had moved to Canada with fiancee Cyndi.


A Just Giving page for the star has been set up and reads:

"On 27th July 2017, Robert Anker aged 27 was involved in a fatal car accident in Canada and sadly passed away at the scene.

"We are raising funds for his family to be able to cover all costs for their trip to go and arrange his funeral in Canada.

"We would love to ensure that his family don't worry or stress about money at this time."

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the death of a British man in Canada. We are providing assistance to his family at this time."

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
