Strictly Come Dancing beauty Ashley Roberts has been left heartbroken after her beloved pooch Cooper was attacked by another dog.
The 37-year-old former Pussycat Dolls singer was “devastated” after her Maltese terrier, who weighs 6lbs, was “savaged” in the capital.
A friend told The Mirror: “Cooper was savaged by a crazed dog – it was horrible.
“Ashley is devastated but, thankfully, he is recovering well.”
Ashley previously spoke out about her gorgeous white pup, stating the nine year old is her “most loyal and loving friend in the world”.
OK! Online have contacted a representative for Ashley for comment.
Ashley was recently partnered with professional Pasha Kovalev on Strictly Come Dancing 2018.
Pasha holds the record for the most 10 scores ever on the BBC series, and won with Love Island host Caroline Flack during the 12th instalment.
The blonde beauty is best known for her time in the hit band The Pussycat Dolls, alongside Nicole Scherzinger, Melody Thornton, Kimberley Wyatt, Jessica Sutta, and Carmit Bachar. Ashley also boasts an impressive solo music career, a variety of TV appearances, and has enjoyed a presenting gig alongside Ant and Dec.
After arriving at the Radio 2 Maida Vale studios in London, Ashley told how she was feeling a kind of “nervous excited.”
Saying how she only learned of her show selection recently she added: “When I got the call I was super excited.
“I miss performing and I am excited to learn a new style of dance as the Latin and Ballroom world is foreign to me.”
