Liam and Nicole bought Ruby and another sausage dog during their marriage, naming the second pooch Brigitte Bardot after the woman Liam would want to be for one day.
Ruby was named after the Rolling Stones song Ruby Tuesday.
The Wall Of Glass singer is known to be particularly passionate about sausage dogs and once said at a concert in Germany in 2011: ‘Extinction of sausage dogs? I will prevent that!
‘When I’m back in England I am gonna buy 900 of them. I am gonna prevent them from downfall.’
Liam and Nicole married in 2008 after eight years of dating but split in 2013 when he had an affair with Liza Ghorbani, who gave birth to his daughter Gemma.
He shares one child, 19-year-old son Gene, with Nicole.
After his split from Nicole, Liam went on to date Debbie Gwyther and the couple are now engaged.
