So very sad.

The Swedish-British television personality, 53, lost her English bulldog, nine-year-old Nessie, just days after Christmas.

And now she has revealed that one of her two remaining bulldogs, Leo, is in mourning.

So much so, that the heartbroken dog is now following Ulrika everywhere.

Taking to Instagram, Ulrika posted to her Stories a video of the gentle giant walking up to her.

The star says she cried throughout Christmas

Just the week prior, she vowed to do all she could to save Nessie.

She penned: “This one’s kidneys are failing her. She also has an infected tooth.

“She’s a tough old bird. Nearly 10. Mummy will do whatever it takes to get you as well as possible.

“You are the glue that holds us all together, Nessie. Love you, Royal Empire My Fair Lady. #bulldogbitch.”

Meanwhile she also encouraged her followers to just do what they can – rather than ‘be strong’ in these tough times.

She explained: “Difficult times. For everyone. Not feeling it for all sorts of reasons.

“All those [bleeps] out there who say ‘stay strong’ foolishly make the assumption you were strong from the start. Some of us are not.

“Don’t feel the need to stay strong. Just stay.”

And taking to her column in The Sun, Ulrika says she is grateful to have been able to have Nessie euthanised.

Ulrika Jonsson wrote of losing her dog: “I have cried myself through Christmas and the pain in my heart will not heal any time soon.

“But I’m so glad we were able to end her suffering before it became unbearable for her, and for us to witness.

“We could have gone on keeping her alive for our sakes but it was not the right thing to do.”
