"The bridge got closed off, and police asked him to leave the area.
"As he was walking away, Dappy heard this young guy shouting his name and waving frantically as he was perched precariously in an arch directly over the Thames.
"After telling a constable he was a fan, Dappy was invited under the cordon to try.
"They spent about 10 minutes talking, and Dappy was amazing. He told him life was beautiful, and that things would get better basically.
"As a result, the guy let medics climb up and help get him off."
The man was taken to hospital as a precaution and following his release, he and his family reached out to thank Dappy.
The insider explained: "After being hospitalised, he was released and reached out to DM Dappy, thanking him profusely.
"The guy's sister also sent a heartfelt message. Dappy's been an absolute hero."
