Cher Lloyd is morning the loss of her dog Buddy.

The X Factor 2010 star, 28, announced the sad news that her nine-year-old French bulldog passed away on Instagram on Tuesday.

Swagger Jagger hitmaker Cher told how she is "absolutely broken" and added that her pooch was "the best boy" in a touching tribute.

"Yesterday we said goodbye to Buddy," she penned.

Cher continued: "Our hearts are absolutely broken. You were such a good boy Bud, the best boy.

"Over 9 years of love, we will miss you and remember you forever."

She illustrated the post with several snaps of Buddy.

Under the heartbreaking upload, several of Cher's celebrity pals send her sympathy messages.

TOWIE's Bobby Norris typed: "I ’m so sorry, sending my love."

Michelle Visage added: "I'm so sorry."

X Factor alumni Katie Waissel typed: "I'm so sorry, thinking of you xx."

Last year, Cher claimed that music bosses tried to pressure her into entering a fake romance with a fellow celebrity to boost her fame.

Despite smashing her way onto the top of the charts with her debut single in 2011, Cher says she was asked to date a fellow star to boost her profile.

However, the star rejected the suggestion and says she being fake goes against the very nature of her personality.

“They gave me a few suggestions but it was just a crazy thing to ask,” Cher said to The Sun.

“Sadly it still happens. That’s still happening in this day and age — that it’s still OK to try to make a young girl do something like that to boost a career,” she went on.

“I am never going to be that girl, I was never going to be that girl,” Cher continued.

Mum-of-one Cher married hairdresser boyfriend Craig Monk in November 2013.

The couple welcomed their daughter Delilah-Rae in May 2018.
