Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jnr and his family have shared their heartbreak as their family dog Izzie has sadly passed away.

TV star Tom Jnr, 26, announced the upsetting news on his Instagram story as he paid tribute to the beloved Rottweiler dog.

The Malone's family pup Izzie regularly appeared on Gogglebox alongside the rest of the family's three other Rottweilers as well as mum Julie, dad Tom Snr, sons Sean and Tom Jnr.

Former Gogglebox star Tom, who quit the show earlier this year, posted a video and photo of the beloved family pup on his Instagram story to share the news.

One video sees Tom Jnr filming the dog popping its head out of a moving car to enjoy the wind. Rottweiler Izzie appears to be smiling as she enjoys the journey.

Tom wrote on top of the clip, which was posted on Saturday 31 July: "Very sorry to let you all know that sadly Izzie passed away today" next to a broken heart emoji.

He added: "She was a great dog and we'll miss her dearly" next to a dove emoji.

TV star Tom, who recently showed off his transformation after dying his hair bleach blond, then posted a photo of himself kissing the dog on her head while Izzie looks up and smiles.

He wrote on top of the snap: "That's my girl" next to another broken heart emoji.

Meanwhile, the Malone family's joint Instagram page also paid tribute to their "beautiful girl".

The photo sees Izzie the dog sitting next to Tom Snr on the sofa, while holding a toy, which gives the dog a funny human-like smile, in her mouth.

As they shared the photo, the family wrote in the caption: "Our beautiful girl Izzey ,RIP xx

"We are going to miss you and your gentle ways so very much .Thank you for looking after the Grandkids x" next to a string of broken heart emojis.

The family were flooded with supportive messages from fellow Gogglebox cast mates and fans.

Izzi Warner wrote: "Sorry for you loss sending you love" followed by a pink heart and rainbow emoji.
