My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty has lead the tributes to ‘unbelievable’ twin brothers after they were found dead in a woodland in apparent double suicide.
The brothers, aged 32, have been named locally as Billy and Joe Smith and had been found dead in a remote area close to a farm.
Police in Kent closed a lane in the Sevenoaks area after the bodies were discovered in a tree just before midday yesterday.
The family is believed to have previously expressed concern for the 32-year-old pair, who were named locally following the discovery – just days after Christmas.
Co-star Paddy took to Facebook and asked his followers to pray for their families.
