Writing on social media, Allsopp asked fans to join her in “sending so much love” to Spencer, following the death of the couple on Friday.
Spencer’s father David, 89, and mother Anne, 82, were taken to hospital after the one-vehicle crash but could not be saved.
A third person, a woman in her 60s, was also in the vehicle and sustained minor injuries.
Sharing a photograph of the late couple, Allsopp wrote: “This lovely photograph, recently taken at their home in Kent, is of Anne and David Spencer, I am desperately sad to have to say that they were both killed yesterday in a car accident near their home.
“They were farmers, animal lovers and devoted parents to Robert, Caryn, Helen and Philip and adored their eight 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 and prayers, thank you.”
