JLS singer Ortise Williams’ £3million mansion is still sitting derelict despite 18 months going by since it burnt down.
Photographs taken by a rambler and posted to Instagram show the six-bedroom London home has remained how it was left after the fire ripped through the building.

Ortise, 33, had been trying to sell the home, which previously belonged to comedian Ronnie Corbett, when the fire occurred.
The incident happened just one week after the singer was cleared of raping a fan, but despite suspicions, police closed arson investigations due to a lack of evidence.
Pictures of the house show the mansion falling apart, with it’s roof collapsing, windows smashed and gutted interior.
Weeds are seen growing through the windows and up the outside of the Croydon property, with the pool green with algae.

Much of the home is completely ruined[/caption]
In the once opulent bedroom, only a headboard and a mattress remain with the room filled with dust, tiles and wall insulation.
While the bathroom remains partly intact – apart from the crumbling ceiling – the kitchen resembles a dusty building site.
Seventy firefighters fought to save the home in June 2019, but the London Fire Brigade reported that 80 per cent of the second floor was wiped out.
Nobody was harmed in the enormous blaze, with Ortise and his girlfriend AJ Azari not living there at the time.

The fire occurred days after the boyband frontman was cleared of a sex attack on a 20-year-old girl after a solo gig in Wolverhampton.
Ortise was accused of plying the woman and her two young pals with alcohol in a bar, before raping one of them at the Ramada Park Hall Hotel on December 2, 2016.
Following a nine-day trial, he was unanimously cleared of rape at Wolverhampton Crown Court after just two hours of deliberation.
