This week Sophie tells us about June and Jennifer Gibbons, a pair of twins who communicated only with themselves in a language only they understood, earning them the nick name of 'The Silent Twins'.

The two girls were inseparable and despite seeing a succession of therapists, refused to communicate with others. An attempt to separate them by sending them to different boarding school, proved fruitless as both girls became catatonic and entirely withdrawn without the other.

In their late teens, the began experimenting with drugs and alcohol, resulting in them committing a series of crimes, resulting in them both being admitted to Broadmoor Hospital, where they would spend 12 years before being released thanks to the efforts of journalist, Majorie Williams.

The girls held an understanding that should one of them die, the other must go on and live a normal life. And it was during their time at Broadmoor, that they felt it was a necessity that one of them must die.
