Jonathan Ross cancels show after doggy death
Jonathan Ross has called a halt to a show he was recording about travelling across Russia after his dog - who was with him on the trip - died during transit.
Jonathan Ross has cancelled his new TV show after his dog Mr. Pickle died.
The 50-year-old TV personality was travelling across Russia on the Trans-Siberian railway as part of a new programme when his pet pooch passed away.
A source said: "One of the things Jonathan was really looking forward to after he left the BBC was getting to do a few more off-the-wall productions. Top of his list was this trip with Mr. Pickle. He was incredibly devoted to Mr. Pickle.
"Jonathan doesn't really like talking about it so the details are a little sketchy, but it seems he died while on the train. To say Jonathan was devastated is an understatement, he was totally distraught. Jonathan thought about making the trip alone, but just couldn't bring himself to do it."
Although Jonathan did not confirm details he did thank fans on his twitter page for their concern about his furry friend.
He wrote yesterday (06.06.11): "Many thanks to everyone for the kind words. Still a bit too upset to really talk about it but thanks to all."
