Diversity and Britain’s Got Talent star Robert Anker, 27, killed in car crash


Former Diversity dancer and Britain’s Got Talent winner Robert Anker has been killed in a car crash in Canada.

The 27-year-old was named in local reports of the collision in the Vaughan area of Ontario on Thursday morning.

Canada’s York Regional Police said a Chevy Cobalt and a Ford F550 collided in Major Mackenzie Drive just before 6am.

A police spokesman said the Chevy driver died of his injuries, but the other driver was not hurt.

Essex-born Mr Anker had reportedly moved to the country to live with his wife, who he tied the knot with last year.

His cousin Rochelle Hanson said the family were “heartbroken”.
