Lord Paddick 'devastated' after sudden death of husband at their home in Oslo

Liberal Democrat peer and former senior police officer Lord Paddick said he is “devastated” after the sudden death of his “beautiful, loving husband” at their home in Oslo.

Lord Paddick, who appeared in the 2008 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, said Petter Belsvik “was found peacefully alone” and it was not “immediately apparent” what had caused his death.

He tweeted: “My beautiful, loving husband, Petter Belsvik, has died suddenly at our home in Oslo. 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 & I am devastated.”
