ALAN Carr’s beloved dog Bev has died after he and ex Paul Drayton made the tough decision to end her life.
Paul, who split from Alan earlier this year, shared the sad news on social media last night as he paid tribute to the beloved pooch.
Alan and Paul owned two Irish red Setters – the late Bev and Joyce, both of whom appeared on Hollyoaks with him when he made a cameo.
Sharing the news of Bev’s passing, Paul said: “It is with a heavy broken heart that myself and Alan @chattyman had to make the hardest decision to make our last act of love and let our Bev go.
“She has been the best companion I could have hoped for. She has been my rock and savor on many many occasions and I cannot begin to tell you how much we will miss her.
“We spent her last afternoon altogether in the garden of my new home, laughing, chatting and reminiscing on how much joy she brought to our lives, which is what I wanted her to feel and share.”
He added: “For all you pet owners out there, give them a kiss and hold them tight and tell them you love them. RIP my angel 🙏🏻💔🙏🏻💔🙏🏻💔🙏🏻 Love always (Strict) Daddy #heartbroken.”
Alan previously opened up about this dogs, saying: “Our days revolve around the dogs.
“We’re like those parents who move across the country so their kids can go to the best school.”
Alan and Paul were together for 13 years and married for three before announcing their split in January.
A statement released by Alan’s representative at the time read: “After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce they are separating.
“They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways. We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.”
Paul later shared his own post on Instagram telling fans he had “checked himself into rehab” to protect himself.
He explained it was “not an easy step to take” but was aware it “was the right one going forward” for himself and Alan.
He added: added: “These last couple of years have been challenging to say the least, as they have been for so many others.
“I remain deeply committed to my journey of sobriety and strength. I thank you all for your kindness and support. Peace and love.”
