Britain's Got Talent star Paula Moulton dies 'suddenly'

Britain’s Got Talent star Paula Moulton has died.

The Strictly Wheels dancer, who appeared on the talent show in 2012, made it to the live semi-finals after winning four yes’ by the judges during their audition.

She is said to have died ‘suddenly’ after suffering from MRSA.

Sharing a tribute on Facebook, the Strictly Wheels page posted: ‘We are devastated to announce the sudden passing of our co-founder Paula.

‘Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this extremely sad time.

‘Paula’s legacy will always live in our memories from her utter joy of dance. #soundon for our favourite music from dance class.’

Moulton previously spoke about the infection, which she had after suffering from pneumonia and left her with a damaged pelvis, lower spine, hips and femurs.

In a 2012 interview, she said: ‘I’ve got nerve damage. I can stand but I can’t walk and I use leg splints when I do stand.

‘It was 17 years ago when I got MRSA. I was so ill I can’t remember a lot about it.’

Moulton continued to The Daily Star at the time: ‘It should have killed me because I had septicaemia. I’m lucky to be alive.’

She added: ‘When I was told I’d be in a wheelchair it was actually a relief because I was falling over and I was so exhausted. Initially I managed to get up on crutches but it was causing so much damage that the only option was to use a chair full-time.’

Ahead of her stint on Britain’s Got Talent, Paula worked as a social worker, having begun competing with her partner Gary two years before their audition.
