Heartbroken Made In Chelsea star Binky, 31, and husband Max Frederick Darnton, 31, hailed their buddy as a “real diamond”.
Paul disappeared after a house party on Sunday and texted his girlfriend around 12:40 p.m. to say he had walked the two miles home from Barnes to Putney.
His disappearance sparked a huge police search before the Met’s Marine Policing Unit made the dire discovery.
The newly married couple Binky and Max shared Instagram photos of them exercising with Paul in their garden.
A message on Binky’s Insta page said, “Rest in peace, Paul. Terribly sad and terrible.
“Nice to have known you. You really had the kindest soul. I send so much love to you and all of your family and friends. “
Max said, “So proud of what you’ve achieved and the journey you’ve been on. Thanks for everything you taught me.
You really had the nicest soul. I send so much love to you and all of your family and friends

“A mature young man who gave me so many insights. Our friendship was only just beginning.
“Proud, kind, honest and ambitious. A real diamond and taken too soon. Prayers to your family and friends.”
Formal identification has yet to be made as the Met Police are currently treating the death as unresolved.
Paul’s next of kin have been notified and are assisted by specialist officers.
Police are asking people in the area to check their doorbell recordings to see if Paul has been spotted.
Anyone with information can call 999 using the reference 3655 / 15Aug. You can also contact the Missing People charity anonymously on 116 000.
