Stacey Solomon has opened up about why she is dreading Christmas a little bit this year.
The mum-of-four explained that this is her first Christmas after her dog Theo’s death.
Speaking on her Instagram, Stacey told her millions of followers that Christmas will be bittersweet this year.
It’s her first Christmas since her wedding to Joe Swash, but it is also her family’s first Christmas without their dog Theo.
She wrote, “Happy Heavenly Christmas Theo. Me and Rexy spent the morning visiting Theo. Cleaning her plaque and bringing her some fresh flowers.”
“It sounds silly but it gets closer to Christmas and I remember that Boxing Day we lost her, I’m missing her more than ever,” she said.
“I’m feeling a bit of dread towards Boxing Day for some reason, we love you Fifi, happy heavely Christmas darling.”
Stacey and her family lost Theo last December.

The presenter confirmed their heartbreaking news on Instagram.
“Sweet Dreams Theo. The best friend we could have ever wished for. Our hearts are broken. Yesterday at home in our arms we had to say goodnight to our Theo. 11 wonderful years.
“We were so lucky to love you Fifi and we will never stop. My lap has never felt so empty. I miss you so much already.”
Stacey’s family has since rescued two dogs, Peanut and Teddy.
