Love Island couple Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have shared that their new puppy Mr Chai has died after they had him for just six days.

Tommy had surprised Molly-Mae with the Pomeranian puppy for her 21st birthday last week, but after only taking him on Friday, the dog fell ill.

Writing on Instagram, Molly-Mae said: "Tommy and I are utterly heartboken and shocked to even be writing this. Our beautiful new puppy Mr Chai was taken ill in the last few days and tragically has passed away.

"Chai became out whole world in the short time we had him and we couldn't have taken any better care of him. We loved him so much and he brought us more happiness than we can describe...

"We are really hoping that we can get some clearer answers in the coming days whilst we wait for details and more information from the veterinary experts. Myself and Tommy are completely in shock and truly devastated."

Referring to the coronavirus pandemic and protests that are taking place in cities around the world, Molly-Mae said that she knows there are 'far greater issues than this', but of course she is still sad about the passing of her new pet.

She continued: "In a world currently full of tragedy and loss, we understand there are far far greater issues than this, we just need to share this information in order to start the process of trying to accept and overcome this awful situation...

"We asking for some time and respect so that we can come to terms with this immense sadness and loss of our beautiful puppy."

The couple had even made an Instagram account for Mr Chai, which quickly gained upwards of 140k followers.

When Tommy first gave the dog to Molly-Mae, he also got her a Louis Vuitton dog carrier, which cost around £2,000 ($2,500).

The note he wrote to her was shared on her Instagram Stories. It read: "Dear Mummy, I can't wait to meet you in a few days.

"Until then have the best birthday and I know Daddy will be spoiling you rotten love you loads. Your son, Mr Chai. Woof woof."

Having been spotted out in the park with the dog at the weekend, Molly-Mae was already infatuated with the puppy, posing for a photo while she was out with Tommy.

The pair live in a flat together in Manchester after meeting on the 2019 summer edition of the ITV2 dating show.
