Channel 7 supports House Rules twins after dad's death
UPDATE: Channel 7 has extended its support to Dalby twins Luke and Cody Cook, and their family, as they come to terms with their father's sudden death.
"Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Luke and Cody Cook, and their family, at this incredibly difficult time," a statement released this afternoon said.
"Luke and Cody are members of the 7 Queensland team and we will support them as they work their way through their tragic loss."
EARLIER: Tragedy has struck the family of popular House Rules duo Luke and Cody Cook.
The Dalby boys' father Steve Cook was found dead at a Western Downs home last night.
Police were called to the address about 6.45pm.
There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the sudden death.
The community has rallied around the popular family who rose to prominence during last year's House Rules series on Channel 7.
In July last year, the pair celebrated with the entire community as they were announced the winners of the series.
Their success on the nationally televised renovation show united the community and much of the country between the Queensland country larrikins.
The two men spent the night celebrating with the tiny western Queensland town at the iconic Crterion Hotel.
They described their time on the show as a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".
"I am so happy, I never thought we would have gotten this far," Cody said at the time.
"It has been fantastic. Dalby has rallied around us, the support has been phenomenal and I want to thank everyone for getting behind us."
The brothers, Luke and Cody, are the current presenters of the station's Creek to Coast program.
Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
