Lydia Bright's dog is dead
Lydia Bright's dog has died.
The 26-year-old television personality has taken to social media to break the heart wrenching news that her Patterdale terrier named Paddy has passed away, although the 'Only Way Is Essex' star has yet to confirm how her pet pooch lost his life.
The blonde beauty - who is currently in Austria training for the Channel 4 competition show 'The Jump' - shared an image of her furry friend on her Instagram account.
The caption read: "RIP my boy Paddy. Thank you for the years of love. (sic)."
Lydia's mother, Debbie Bright, has also broadcasted the news of Paddy's death, and hopes the family pet will be surrounded by "squeaky toys" in heaven.
She tweeted: "R.I.P Paddy Boy may heaven be raining with squeaky toys (sic)."
And Lydia's younger brother, Freddie, has also taken to Twitter to share the news.
He said: "Rest in peace Paddy boy (sic)."
Lydia has been inundated with condolences by friends and fans who have left messages to console the reality star for her loss.
Fellow ITVBe cast mate, Amber Dowding, tweeted in response to Lydia's post with a string of red heart emojis.
And Chloe Meadows, 24, commented on the Instagram upload: "This is so sad. So sorry Lyds (sic)."
This news comes a few months after Lydia's co-star Pete Wicks lost his French Bulldog, Ernest, which left the 27-year-old tattooed hunk utterly "heartbroken".
Alongside a picture of Pete playing with the canine, which was shared on his Instagram account, he wrote: "Words can't describe how heartbroken I am to have suddenly lost one of the best things to have ever come in to my life. My boy Ernest wasn't just a dog to me, he was my best friend. Things will never be the same. I'm thankful to him for teaching me a lot about myself and everything about unconditional love. He will always be in my heart. R.I.P Ernest #Wolfpack (sic)."
