Darius enjoyed a successful music career before moving on to the West End stage, starring in Chicago, Guys and Dolls and Funny Girl, opposite Sheridan Smith.

But in 2012, he broke his neck in a car crash in Spain – and three years later he accidentally drank dirty water from the River Thames, causing him to collapse into a near-fatal coma.

The star was demonstrating a charity's new water filter by glugging water pulled straight from the river when he fell ill.

The showbiz world has been reeling since the shock announcement of Darius' death earlier this afternoon.

Rylan Clark said: "Proper sad about Darius."
