"We called him Teddy because Teddy can be short for Theodore so we thought it was a special tribute to Theo," she wrote.

The mum-of-four further confirmed that the new puppy is only six months old and a working cocker spaniel.

"We didn't pick him out but we said we would take any dog suitable for young children and another dog,” she revealed. “We didn't mind what breed, colour, coat anything as long as he would be happy and it was right. And along came Teddy."

She added: "I have no idea why or how anyone could not want him or he wouldn't be 'good' enough. But apparently he is no where near the size he should be for his breed and that was one of the main reasons why he wasn't kept by the breeder."

"We miss you so much Theo. I hope you're looking down from heaven smiling, knowing that peanut will no longer be so very lonely and that a doggy who really needed a family now has one. To the moon and back, always."

Over on her Stories, the Loose Women star further explained how well the new dog had adjusted to his new home.

"As soon as we got home it was like he'd never not been here," she wrote. "He played with Peanut all night and they've followed each other around like shadows all day.

"He's settled in so beautifully; we all love him so much. And Peanut keeps giving extra kisses like he's saying 'thanks for the friend guys'.”
