‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ Twins, Billy Smith & Joe Smith, Found Dead After Alleged Joint Suicide
The twin brothers Billy Smith and Joe Smith, stars of the British reality show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, were found dead on Saturday in England.
The causes of the 32-year-old brothers were not made public. The bodies of the Smiths were found near a rural road near a farm in rural Sevenoaks, Kent. It is believed that the twins committed a joint suicide.
“Two twin boys, two good-looking boys. God bless their souls,” said co-star Paddy Doherty. “That’s a terrible terrible tragedy. Pray for the boys’ family, the boys’ mother and father, help them be strong and get through this.”
“I’m very, very sorry for your troubles,” he continued. “Anyone watching this please say a prayer for those left behind. May God look after them. They are two angels. They’re in the kingdom of Heaven, walking on gold.”
Billy’s partner, Kristina Davey, wrote, “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,” she went on to say. “I’m gonna make you so so proud my Bill, my life, my angel.”
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding first aired in the United Kingdom on Channel 4 broadcast network in 2010 and in the United States in 2011 on TLC. The show filmed the lives of Irish Travelers who are considered ethnic group under law in the United Kingdom. When Billy and Joe participated in the show they were in their early 20s and worked as gardeners.
