Lisa Armstrong has gushed about her dog Hurley.
Lisa became emotional when she spoke about her beloved pet, who she shares with ex Ant McPartlin, revealing that they sometimes share sweets while snuggled up on the sofa together.
The love you get is insane. I absolutely adore him, she told Metro.co.uk at Pup Aid in Primrose Hill.
That connection you have with them – sometimes I think hes half human. You look into their eyes and think they get you, they know what youre talking about, they understand. Hes such a good boy.
Theres nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa with a big fur baby, getting sloppy kisses… we share strawberry shoelaces like Lady and the Tramp – obviously Im not supposed to do that!
But he does all his tricks, Ive trained him to sit and high five and speak and he knows where his cupboard is.
Lisa is returning to Strictly Come Dancing for another series this month, where she works as a make-up artist to the stars.
Understandably she cant wait to get cracking making the famous faces sparkle on the dance floor.
Its so much fun, its my favourite show ever. Creatively wise, with hair and makeup, theres no better job in the world – its like playing Girls World every week with the dancers and the celebrities, Lisa said.
Weve met all the new celebs and theyve just been partnered. Theyre a really good bunch, really fun and really up for it.
Its like a big family and youre all on this big family holiday and on this journey together.
Its a really good part of my life. Ive done this show for 12 years now, and were all friends.
Theres a couple of good pairings this year. Theyre all very determined, they all want to listen to their professionals and get the job done.
Turning to her support for Pup Aid, she was keen to raise awareness of puppy farming and showed her support for Lucys Law, which aims to ban the sale of puppies by pet shops.
Lisa told us: Im a massive dog lover, Ive got a five year old chocolate lab. I didnt bring him today because I was concerned about the heat and obviously him pulling me all over – hes quite a strong boy! He is massive, bless him.
I think its really important to raise awareness about puppy farming, its an absolute disgrace.
These poor animals living in horrendous conditions, being treated like incubators – and people should be made more aware of it. Its absolutely disgusting, and Lucys Law being brought in is incredible.
