"He was found peacefully alone, with no cause of death immediately apparent.
"It will take some time to establish what happened.
"We were devoted to each other and I am devastated."

Paddick was a contestant in the jungle for the eighth series of I'm A Celeb in 2008 and he was the sixth celebrity to be voted off the show, lasting just 17 days in the camp.
He and partner Petter tied the knot in Norway in 2009, just shortly after same-sex marriage became legalised with their ceremony being one of the first high-profile weddings since the legislation was put into place.
