Good Morning Britain presenter Sean Fletcher shared the devastating news his beloved family pooch Mimi has died.

The ITV star revealed the heartbreak he experienced having to say goodbye to the family member after so many year.

Distraught, the 47 year old reporter said he had “cried and cried” upon leaving the vet surgery.

Posting a poignant tribute to his black labrador on Instagram, Sean shared a selection of carefully chosen images of the late canine.

“I didn’t realise how large a hole in my family losing our poor dog Mimi would create,” the GMB star captioned.


"We had to say goodbye to her 10 days ago because her cancer was clearly causing her a huge amount of pain, despite high doses of painkillers.

"As we walked away from the vet we cried and we cried.

“We cried so much I’m not sure when we stopped,” Sean went on. “I didn’t realise it’d affect us like that.

“Dogs become members of the family. They are incredibly loyal companions, and read your feelings better than humans.

"I spent so much time with her in her 10 years. She was my running companion during my training for 4 marathons, helping me through those long hard runs in terrible conditions.

"She was cwitchie (Welsh for cuddly). She was beautiful. She was a hoover when we dropped food on the floor.”

The reporter even shared how Mimi had helped him and his wife to continue having quality time together, going on long walks.

Mimi had even joined Sean during a stint on episodes of Countryfile in 2020, that saw the dog doing hilarious “back rolls” that “stole the show”.

“That’s just a small part of what she gave to us. So it was heartbreaking to watch her deteriorate with cancer. We’ll miss her a lot,” the ITV star added.

Fans and colleagues showed their support to the grieving reporter, as Countryfile presenter Anita Rani encouraged: “Sending love to you all Sean. They are so so special.

“What a lucky soul to have lived with you and your beautiful family. Xxxxxxx,” she added, followed by news reporter Charlotte Hawkins also sending her love.
