WATCH: Ricky's throne has become a bed for his cat Pickle
The best seat in the house has been very clearly commandeered by his cat Pickle, who can be seen sleeping on the throne in the candid snap. He captioned the image: "A royal nap." The chair itself caused quite a stir with one user commenting: "The most British looking chair I've ever seen." And lots of people also approved of his cat's chosen spot for a snooze with one saying: "This chair was made for Pickle."
The video Ricky shared also showed Pickle upon the throne and the comedian filmed himself waking up the sleeping feline who looked pretty comfortable on her royal bed.

Their cat Pickle joined the family earlier this year. Ricky initially revealed that they were just fostering her. He told Instagram followers: "Fostering this little beauty until she goes to her forever home."

The couple, who have been together since 1982, also own another property in Buckinghamshire where they spend their leisure time.
