Former Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr has shared a heartbreaking tribute after his family suffered the loss of much-loved Rottweiler Izzie.
The choreographer and TikTok star posted a touching message on Instagram to remember the beloved dog, which has been seen on the show with the Malones many times.
‘I’m very sorry to let you all know that sadly Izzie passed away today,’ he wrote.
‘She was a great dog and will forever be missed by all of us,’ Tom said, adding a red heart.
Tom also posted a video of him in a car with Izzie, with the dog sticking her head out the window, and a selfie with his pet.
Tom’s parents, Tom Sr and Julie, also sent out heartwarming messages about the news, writing on their Instagram page: ‘Our beautiful girl Izzey, RIP xx We are going to miss you and your gentle ways so very much.

‘Rip izzey,’ one wrote. ‘Love seeing the dogs on gogglebox.’
‘Ah bet you are heartbroken much love to u,’ another said.
‘So sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl. Rest In Peace Izzey,’ one wrote.
It comes after Tom quit Gogglebox earlier this year. The dancer had been on the show for seven years before announcing the news in February.
Tom became a fan favourite on the programme after appearing alongside his mum Julie, dad Tom Senior and brother Shaun, but decided to walk away to pursue further TV projects.
Since then, he’s been keeping his followers up to date on Instagram – and posting hilarious videos of his dad Tom senior.
Gogglebox is available to stream on All4.
