Sadly, Pete Wicks has lost one of his beloved dogs. And he and his lovely lady have shared emotional messages on social media... :(
It seems to be a pretty sad time in Essex at the moment.
Yesterday, we were dealt the news that Danielle Armstrong and James Lock – one of our favourite TOWIE couples – have decided to split. WE KNOW.
And now, it seems that we’ve got some incredibly sad news from one half of another The Only Way Is Essex duo.
Any seasoned TOWIE viewer will know just how much Pete Wicks loves his dogs, so we can imagine just how heartbroken he must have been to share the news that his pooch Ernest has passed away.
The 27-year-old penned a heartfelt message for social media to break the news to his fans.
Taking to both Twitter and Instagram, he wrote: ‘Words can’t describe how heartbroken I am to have suddenly lost on of the best things to have ever come in to my life.
‘My boy Ernest wasn’t just a dog to me, he was my best friend. Things will never be the same.
‘I’m thankful to him for teaching me a lot about myself and everything about unconditional love. He will always be in my heart. R.I.P Ernest #Wolfpack’.
Pete’s other half, Megan McKenna, also took to social media to share her sadness, posting a selfie with Pete’s dog along with the caption: ‘Rest in peace little man, You’ll be missed Ernest.’

The messages of sympathy soon came rolling in, with Essex’s own Kate Wright and Geordie Shore‘s Aaron Chalmers sending their condolences.
We’re so sad to hear the news. Sending all of our love, Pete.
