Ulrika Jonsson reveals she 'can't stop crying' as she mourns the death of her beloved dog
ULRIKA Jonsson has revealed her "tears keep on falling" in the wake of the dog Nessie's sudden death.
The heartbroken TV presenter's bulldog died last week after being rushed to the vets with kidney failure, leaving the 53-year-old "bereft".
Taking to her Instagram Stories yesterday, Ulrika first shared a picture with her daughter Bo, 21, who did her make-up in a bid to cheer her up.
Posting a photo of them mid-beauty transformation, she penned: "when the ungrateful wants to do your make-up because your still mourning" (sic).
The Shooting Stars panellist then uploaded a selfie of her sporting smokey-eye make-up while resting her head on a yellow cushion.
Despite her smile, Ulrika admitted in the caption: "Tears keep on falling but there are lovely moments in between".
Last week, Ulrika shared her and her remaining pooch Leo's first day without Nessie with her Instagram followers.
A very sad looking Leo was seen perched on the sofa with his face in his paws before he and Ulrika went to lay flowers at Nessie's grave.
The grieving dog mum revealed they'd buried their beloved Nessie next to her other late bulldog, Dexter.
Later in the day, Ulrika shared a heartbreaking selfie of her shoulder and the bottom half of her face.
She wrote: "All I can smell is #grief. Ma grande dame. My first born fur baby.
"Has spent 48hrs at our lovely vet’s. She’s not going to win this battle. I’ve been beyond distraught and bereft.
"We will keep her at home as long as we can. My girl. #nessie".
She then continued to tell fans how much she was struggling with the loss of her dog.
Alongside a make-up free selfie she wrote: "Difficult times.
For everyone. Not feeling it for all sorts of reasons."
"All those a**** 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.
Ulrika has been working on British TV since the late 80s and has hosted some of the biggest TV shows in the UK.
She has previously revealed how her dogs helped her greatly with her depression.
"I couldn’t live without them. I centre my life around the children and the dogs. They’ve been very good for my depression because they’re such excellent company (now I really do sound mad…)," Ulrika told Pets Pyjamas.
"But going for daily walks helps me tremendously. Not only does it get me out of the house but you invariably meet other dog owners who are – as a general rule – very nice."
