Britain’s Got Talent winner Jamie Lambert of boyband Collabro assaulted in broad daylight in brutal street mugging. The singer suffered a broken nose and two black eyes as he was attacked with brass knuckles by a gang in central London on Wednesday.

Jamie told the Sun’s Bizarre column: “I’m just recovering from the shock. It’s obviously not very nice. I’ve got a broken nose which is healing and I’m shaken but it could have been a lot worse.”

 

Jamie, 27, won the ITV competition in 2014 with group Collabro after they wowed judges and the nation with their musical theatre songs.

 

He reassured fans he was fine following the harrowing experience in a statement released on Twitter.

 

 

Jamie said: “Hi guys. Thanks for the concern as to where I’ve been. I was assaulted in an attempted robbery on Wednesday. I’m absolutely fine but taking time to relax and recover physically/mentally. The boys and HQ are taking good care of me. Carry on as normal please!”

 

Jamie says he was approached by a group of men in broad daylight whilst he was out shopping with a friend. He said: “They asked me to hand over my belongings and I said, because we were in a busy street, ‘Are you mad?’

 

“And they tried to pull me into alley and I pulled away and they broke my nose with something like brass knuckles under a glove.

Carly, aged 31 from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, started on the pre-graduate nursing programme in September 2014. She was looking forward to her journey and life time ambition of becoming a qualified Nurse.

 

Carly had undertaken an Access course prior to her application in order to succeed. When Carly started on the programme she was enthusiastic and determined to succeed and had put structures in place to support her and her young family during the 3 year programme.

 

 

Her partner was the main support with input from Carly’s mother. Carly’s time at the University was going as expected until the sudden and unexpected death of her partner’s mother at the age of 58, eighteen months into the programme.

 

 

This was a traumatic time for the family. Carly struggled on with her studies always juggling her time between study and home life and supporting her partner and her family alongside financial constraints.

Carly Skyrme qualified as nurse.

All this pressure had its effect on Carly who struggled daily to cope with these demands. However, she would come to College with a smile on her face and all her clinical reviews were positive. Carly was determined to achieve for both herself and her family recognising that this would improve the quality of life for them all.

 

Heulwen Morgan-Samuel, Senior Lecturer in Nursing and Carly’s personal tutor said: “Academia wasn’t always easy for Carly but she persevered and was delighted to complete the programme and graduate alongside her cohort. Carly demonstrated grit, determination and professionalism in order to succeed. “

 

Speaking about her time at Swansea University Carly said; “Being at Swansea University was one of the most challenging but life changing experiences of my life. I met an amazing group of friends with fantastic support from my personal tutor and mentors in practice.

 

“I always knew that going to university as a non- academic with small children would be hard, but my focus on providing my family with a better life and doing it with a career I am passionate about was all made worthwhile when I secured a job as a cardiac nurse with a brilliant team at Withybush Coronary Care Unit.”

“It was some kind of weapon. I’m not allowed to say too much about it. The police are looking for them. They left empty handed. I think I got off quite well actually. It’s the first ever bone I’ve ever broken and my sister is a doctor. I also worked in hospitals for a very long time before Collabro so the physical aspect of things didn’t phase me. The staff at the Royal London, paramedics and staff were amazing. I have to go back and get my nose reset with a specialist I think.”

 

He added: "It’s not so much the physical injury side but the mental side that gets you after. If I turn up at a gig with a bandaged nose and black eyes you will know why. I’m chilling out at home now and letting myself heal."

 

The police are investigating this incident.

Runners will again be showered with vibrant multi-coloured paint for the last Rainbow Run in Swansea .

 

The event is held across Wales in a bid to raise funds for the Welsh Children’s Hospice Ty Hafan.

 

The Swansea Rainbow Run will be held on Swansea beach on April 28 and entries are now open.

 

Based on the Indian Holi festival of colour, athletes can either run or walk the 5km route - where powder paint will be thrown at them at every kilometre.

 

And as many people as possible are needed this year, with all money raised helping to fund T Hafan nurses.

 

Last year, around 2,500 people signed up to take on the 5km run across the sands in Swansea. The event was also taken to Barry , Tredegar and Porthcawl in 2017.
