Phil Spencer's celebrity friends share condolences after parents' tragic deaths

The ‘Location, Location, Location’ presenter, 53, is devastated after his dad Richard, 89, and mum Anne, 82, were killed in an accident on their farm in Kent on Friday (18.08.23) but insisted it was God's plan that they died together.

After Phil shared a message on Instagram, his famous friends reached out with his 'Location, Location, Location' co-star Kirstie Allsopp, writing: "Such a brave and loving statement and so typical of you your lovely family. So many people have you all in their thoughts and prayers. Xxx."

TV presenter Piers Morgan said: "How incredibly sad. So sorry Phil," while adventurer Ben Fogle added: "So sorry Phil."

Chef Phil Vickery said: "My thoughts are with you and the family,", 'This Morning' presenter Craig Doyle wrote: "Oh Phil, this is so very sad. My thoughts are with you and your family. May they rest in peace" and radio presenter Jenni Falconer commented: "Oh Phil, sending so much love to you and your family. This is truly heartbreaking."

The comments came after Phil's heartbreaking post about his beloved parents.

He wrote: "Very sadly both of my amazing parents died on Friday.

“As a family we are all trying to hold onto the fact Mum and Dad went together and that neither will ever have to mourn the loss of the other one. Which is a blessing in itself.”

Opening up about his parents’ illnesses, Phil added: “Although they were both on extremely good form in the days before (hence the sudden idea to go out to lunch), Mum’s Parkinson’s and Dad’s Dementia had been worsening and the long-term future was set to be a challenge.

“So much so that Mum said to me only a week ago that she had resigned to thinking ‘now it looks like we will probably go together’.

“And so they did. That was what God had planned for them – and it was a good plan.”

Giving details of the pair’s crash, Phil told his followers: “The car, going very slowly, toppled over a bridge on the farm drive, upside down into the river. There were no physical injuries and I very much doubt they would have even fought it – they would have held hands under the water and quietly slipped away.

“Their carer was in the car and managed to climb out of a back window so the alarm was raised quite quickly.

“As many farmers do – my brother had a penknife and so was able to cut the seat belts – he pulled them out of the river but they never regained consciousness.

“Although desperately sad and shocked beyond all belief – all family are clear that if there can ever be such a thing as having a ‘good end’ – this was it.”

Phil signed off his post with: “It feels horrendous right now, but after almost 60 years of marriage – to die together on the farm they so loved will, I know, be a comfort in the future.

“Mum Dad are together which is precisely where they would have wanted to be."
