West Londoner Rita Ora was also spotted sorting through clothing bags for families affected by the disaster, whilst TOWIE star Tommy Mallett also visited the site to bring numerous boxes of clothes for people who had lost everything in the fire.

The singer posted a picture of herself en route to the scene on her Snapchat, urging all of her followers to do the same. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this horrific tragedy in West London (sic)".

The Your Song hitmaker was left "devastated" when she found out 12 people were killed and several injured after a faulty fridge exploded inside the 27-storey apartment building, as she used to play inside there when she was a child.

"This is my neighborhood I can't believe this is happening", she wrote on Instagram.

Instagram user FourMee shared photos of the star on their account, writing that they'd seen her outside, alongside husband Simon Konecki. "My prayers are with everybody involved, my heart is beating so fast", she said.

The singer was pictured visibly upset by the situation, as eyewitnesses claim she was "asking if anyone needs help".

Along with Rita, other celebrities have shown their support, with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver taking to Instagram to alert those in need that he would be offering food and drink to the victims of the fire at his local restaurant.

'I used to play in that block - I want to do all I can do to help'.

Meanwhile, Adele is reported to have visited the scene of the fire on Wednesday night. Respect to both of you.

'It's very unusual not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family'.
