She wrote: "Morning lessons in the dog's bed. Jasper has been very poorly for the past two weeks (he stopped eating and drinking) and after various blood tests and scans, they diagnosed a potential 'marginal zone lymphoma' in his spleen which has now been removed.

"Now he's back home and recovering, but it's like Holby City here with all the dressings and medications. He's drinking again of his own accord, but getting him to eat is an uphill struggle.

Jane revealed her beloved dog's illness on Instagram

"He still has a feeding tube in his neck as back up, but ideally he will start to eat normally again. He had one sausage on Saturday and would only eat a bit of mashed potato yesterday, so if any of you have been through a similar scenario with your pet and have any tips on what might tempt him to eat again, any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you! #jasper #tibetanterrier #sickdog #surgery #splenectomy #dog."

Jane has been married to Gary Farrow since 2002

She later spoke about her Ab-Fab style relationship with Ellie in a 2008 interview with Women and Home.

She said: "Ellie has always been the more measured, capable, sensible one in our relationship; ploughing a steady furrow through the often chaotic landscape of, at first, my early years as a single mother then, later, the challenges of becoming part of a 'blended' family, as the Americans refer to those of us who marry someone with children from another relationship.

"Her step-sister, Lauren, who’s six years older yet freely admits to being a lot less responsible, likened Ellie to Ab Fab's Saffy when they first met back in 1998, and the moniker has stuck," Jane revealed.
