The beautiful Shar Pei died in February when Jamie was on honeymoon with his new wife Frida. At the time, the sportsman uploaded two throwback snaps of Blu and remarked: "Goodbye beautiful girl, we will miss you so much [broken heart emoji]. Blu [heart emoji]."

Blu belonged to the former couple and their two sons, Charlie and Beau. Louise shared a series of snaps of the beloved dog. "I am absolutely heartbroken that we had to say goodbye to our little girl Blu early this morning," she said, adding: "I wanted to share this with you because I know so many of you follow their insta page and loved seeing what Blu and Rudi were up to and loved them as much as we did."

The mum-of-two concluded the message with: "We'll miss you so much, sleep tight our gorgeous Bluebells [heart emoji]. Love you forever Mummy, Chaz and Beau Beau's Xxx."

It seems the beloved pooch – who had been on the family since she was a puppy - predominantly lived with Louise. It's also been over a year since Louise and Jamie lost their rescue dog Corky, whom they adopted together in 2016 from Cyprus.
