Eerie photos inside JLS star’s abandoned mansion covered in rubble and bird nests

Former JLS star Oritse Williams’ millionaire mansion was burnt down last year and all that stands is a burnt shell, filled with rubble, growing moss and pigeons.

Urban explorer Colin Smith captured the remains of the property after a fire ripped through the estate in June 2019.

The blaze took place just days after he was acquitted over allegations he raped a fan.

Colin, 36, from Hampshire, captured footage and photos across the home and from above, which show the roof completely collapsed.

The kitchen, fitted with top-of-the-range solid marble countertops, is covered in a layer of dust following the damage.

Wardrobes are found in the upper section of the two-story master bedroom, some with hangers left inside

Timber frames in the roof and ceilings have been left charred from the blaze last year, and the sky can be seen visibly through the gaps.

A bedroom, which still has a bed frame and mattress inside, also features a jacuzzi with black tiles with a crown pattern. Windows with black trim can be seen behind the tub. The room has been destroyed from rubble falling from the ceiling.

In another clip there is a safe with a newspaper placed on top, but it’s open and has nothing inside.

The pool outside is fenced-off with danger signs warning over deep water, and weeds are growing in between outdoor slabs on the ground. Stagnant water, green in colour, fills up the pool, and an unused pool table and barbecue can be seen in the distance.

A spiral staircase is covered in rubble and most of the property has been completely gutted.

A large room with a rounded ceiling is now standing as an empty shell with only debris inside.

Inside the walk-in wardrobe, hangers remain without clothes, and a safe in the wall is also empty, but would have been hidden if the mansion was still lived in.

A fireplace with lion heads for decoration still stands, almost unharmed by the flames.

Light fixtures hang down without shades and in some rooms radiators remain fixed to the walls, in others they are piled up on the floor amid rubble.

Upstairs, windows which have been broken are boarded up, and wallpaper has been peeled from the walls.

One small guest bathroom, with blue walls, still have photos and stickers of celebrity legends inside, with the likes of Mickey Mouse, Queen Victoria and Marilyn Monroe.

Mr Smith said: “I remember hearing about the fire when it happened and thinking it would be a great place to go to and visit if I had the opportunity.

“I managed to get into the property through a side window which probably blew out as a result of the fire.

The mansion has been left abandoned for 18 months

“The master bedroom with an in-built jacuzzi was incredible. It had tiles in the shape of crowns and diamonds dotted around which were really unique.

“The house had beautiful cast iron radiators and a huge island kitchen with marble countertops.

“It was clear that no expense had been spared to make the house look amazing.”

The three-storey property has been abandoned for 18 months since the fire.
