A man who beheaded his wife at their home in Cambridgeshire suffered a delusion while the couple were watching the X Factor, it's emerged.

Timothy Allen killed Samantha Ho because he thought the dancers on the ITV show were "being controlled by a puppet master" and were speaking to him through the TV.
