While Chris doesn't have social media, Annabelle has an Instagram account with one million followers. 

She rarely posts photos and Chris certainly doesn't feature in the ones she does. Annabelle wished everyone a happy new year with a beautiful black-and-white photo.

She's a huge animal lover too and has used her fame to spread the word for people to adopt.

One of her posts read: "Consider adopting a dog if you are thinking of getting one. There are so many magic animals in those shelters." She accompanied it with a gorgeous photo of a dog who needed a home.
