Coronation Street actor Sam Aston and his wife Briony have been left distraught just hours after tying the knot, as their pet pooch Buddy has passed away.
On May 6, Yoga teacher Briony wrote on Instagram Stories: “Today we lost another member of our herd. Sweet dreams Buddy. Now you can lick every cushion in the sky.”
Briony admitted she is “so lucky” to have 25-year-old Sam – who plays dog lover Chesney Brown on Corrie – through such tough times.
She also wrote: “Sam and I are so lucky to have each other through good times and bad, thank you for the love.”
The newlyweds’ loss comes just after they married at Stock Farm in Cheshire on Saturday (May 4) surrounded by their family and friends, including several of Sam’s ‘Corrie’ co-stars.
Sam’s co-stars Katie McGlynn, Brooke Vincent, Alan Halsall and Mikey North were all in attendance to see the pair, who have been engaged since June 2017, marry.
What’s more, Sam and Briony’s latest dog devastation comes just weeks after they lost another one of their adorable four-legged friends.
Last month, Sam took to Instagram to pay tribute to his late pet pooch Bella.
The cobbles favourite wrote: “Earlier today, I said goodbye to my beautiful black lab. It’s very true when they say a dog is a mans best friend. Sleep well Bella…..You were and will always be my girl. (sic)”
Sam’s alter-ego Chesney has also suffered the pain of losing a dog.
The flame-haired Weatherfield resident took care of pooch Schmeichel – a pure breed Great Dane named after former Denmark and Manchester United footballer Peter Schmeichel – after he was left on Tyrone’s doorstep in 2004.
After seven years of caring for the four-legged friend, the mutt was put to sleep in 2011 after being diagnosed with liver cancer.
