My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding twin brothers found dead in suspected joint suicide

Two brothers who appeared in the Channel 4 series My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding have been found dead in a suspected double suicide.

Twins Billy and Joe Smith, 32, were discovered together in woodland in Sevenoaks, Kent, at around 11.30am on Saturday.

Police were called to the scene in Dibden Lane but the deaths are not being treated as suspicious.

Tributes have been paid online by friends and relatives of the pair.

Billy Smith’s partner Kristina Davey, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, said: ”Hardest day of my life. RIP my perfect Bill, you were so pure so lovely.

“You made me the happiest girl – did everything for me, showed me love I never had. You always see stuff like this but you just never think it’ll happen to you.

“I can’t believe I have to type this together struggling to speak never mind put a sentence together. I’m gonna make you so so proud my Bill, my life, my angel.”

Paddy Doherty, who also appeared in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and Celebrity Big Brother, posted a video calling the brothers “angels”.

He added: ”Two good looking boys... That’s a terrible, terrible tragedy. Pray for the boys’ family.”

A Kent Police spokesman said: “We were called at 11.34am on Saturday after the bodies of two men were discovered in Dibden Lane, Sevenoaks.

“Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the deaths are ongoing, but they are not currently being treated as suspicious.”

He added: “The next of kin of both men are aware and being kept updated.”
