"This lovely photograph, recently taken at their home in Kent, is of Anne & David Spencer, I am desperately sad to have to say that they were both killed yesterday in a car accident near their home," she wrote.

"They were farmers, animal lovers & devoted parents to Robert, Caryn, Helen & Philip and adored their 8 Grandchildren, the only blessing is that they died together, so will never have to mourn the loss of each other.

"I suspect many of you may want to join me in sending so much love to Phil and all his family.

"Please keep them in your thoughts & prayers, Thank you."

Spencer and Allsopp are best known for presenting Channel 4 show Location, Location, Location together for more than 20 years.

Allsopp also told The Sun: “I’ve spoken to Phil and it’s tragic for the Spencer family, but his parents were together and that’s something that is a great source of solace to them all.

“The family is very loving and close.

“There are four children, Phil, Robert, Caryn and Helen, and they had eight grandchildren.

“This is awful for all of the family, but they were together at the end and they were lovely people.

“They were on their way to the pub on a Friday afternoon in Kent, where they lived — they were in the place they loved, with the person they loved.

“They were both people of Christian faith.

“Phil and his siblings are all consoling each other at this difficult time.”
