A WOMAN stabbed to death at her home yesterday is a Britain’s Got Talent star whose six-year-old son died of a blood disorder, Mirror has learned.
Simonne Kerr, who shot to fame as part of the NHS choir B Positive on the ITV show, was killed in a well-heeled London suburb on Wednesday.
The haematology and oncology nurse performed in front of judges, Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Amanda Holden in June as part of the B Positive for the NHS Blood and Transplant, to promote blood donations.
The group was a wild card entry to the final, losing out to comedian Lost Voice Guy.
She was stabbed to death in a flat in Grayshott Road in the affluent 'Nappy Valley' area of southwest London.
Desmond Sylva, 40, has been charged with Simonne's murder and is due to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
Police were called at 12.38pm and she was pronounced dead at 1.40pm.
Simonne, who worked as a nurse at Guys and St Thomas Hospital in south London, joined the choir after her son, died in 2015.
She discovered she was a sickle cell disease carrier during a routine 12-week pregnancy scan and Kavele was diagnosed at only five days old after a heel-prick test.
