Fans of the former Loose Women panellist rushed to the post's replies to send their love, condolences and support, with one writing: "I am so sorry, it is never easy to lose our fur babies", while another commented: "Nothing like losing an animal, so sorry to hear x".

Another Price fan said: "This is heartbreaking Katie, I know how much you adored him and how he protected you through everything". While hundreds of others reacted with just love hearts and crying face emojis.

Blade's tragic passing comes after years of heartache for Katie Price who lost her pet dog Sharron, which had reportedly been killed in a car accident. She also lost her Alsatian named Sparkle who died after escaping from the family home and onto a busy road in 2020, while Queenie lost her life after a pizza delivery driver run her over.

Her daughter Princess' puppy Rolo reportedly died after it was left unsupervised and was crushed in an electric armchair. One of Katie's horses were also killed in a crash.

People have previously taken to Change.org to sign a petition that would prohibit Katie Price from owning pets for life, at one point surpassing 24,000 signatures, which reportedly left the TV star 'devastated'. The death of Blade has seen this point raised once more.
