Twin brothers, 32, found dead together on an isolated country lane in a suspected double suicide are

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty has led tributes to 'unbelievable' twin brothers who were found dead in a woodland in an apparent double suicide.

The 32-year-old men have been named locally as Billy and Joe Smith and were found in a remote area near a farm.

Police in Kent closed a lane in the Sevenoaks area after the bodies were discovered in a tree just before midday yesterday.

Mr Doherty, who co-starred in the popular Channel 4 show with the twins, took to Facebook and asked his followers to pray for their families, and in a video described the duo as 'angels'.

He said: 'They were two good looking boys...God bless their souls... it is a terrible tragedy. Pray for the boy's family, for his mother and father.

'I'm very sorry for their troubles from the bottom of my heart. May god look after them, may god have mercy on them, they are two angels, harmless, they were unbelievable...they're in the kingdom of heaven walking on gold.'

The family is believed to have previously expressed concern for the pair, who were found just days after Christmas and their birthday on December 16.

Just days before their suspected suicide, the pair were filmed dancing and singing together.

Sources claimed it was a joint suicide, with Dibden Lane remaining closed and a police car on the scene yesterday.

Friends and family members who knew the two brothers took to social media to pay tribute to the men, with one claiming 'depression was rife'.

Billy's partner Kristina Davey, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, described him as 'perfect, pure and lovely' in a heartbreaking tribute.

She 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.'

My view: It is sad that they felt so low and thought the only way out was to commit suicide, such a terrible tragedy.
