    N-Dubz star Dappy saved the life of a suicidal man

    The 34-year-old star was filming a music video near London's Tower Bridge when he was recognised by the 27-year-old man, who is a "huge fan", and invited over by police to try to help


    A source told The Sun newspaper: "Dappy was filming his new music video around Tower Bridge, but saw loads of police cars and ambulances dotted around.

    "The bridge got closed off, and police asked him to leave the area.

    "As he was walking away, Dappy heard this young guy shouting his name and waving frantically as he was perched precariously in an arch directly over the Thames.

    "After telling a constable he was a fan, Dappy was invited under the cordon to try.

    "They spent about 10 minutes talking, and Dappy was amazing. He told him life was beautiful, and that things would get better basically.

    "As a result, the guy let medics climb up and help get him off."

    The man was taken to hospital as a precaution and following his release, he and his family reached out to thank Dappy.

    The insider explained: "After being hospitalised, he was released and reached out to DM Dappy, thanking him profusely.

    "The guy's sister also sent a heartfelt message. Dappy's been an absolute hero."
