Emotional Sean posted a moving tribute to his late pet on Instagram, along with a series of photos of them together.
He wrote: “I didn’t realise how large a hole in my family losing our poor dog Mimi would create.
“We had to say goodbye to her 10 days ago because her cancer was clearly causing her a huge amount of pain, despite high doses of painkillers.
“As we walked away from the vet we cried and we cried. We cried so much I’m not sure when we stopped. I didn’t realise it’d affect us like that.

“Dogs become members of the family. They are incredibly loyal companions, and read your feelings better than humans.
“I spent so much time with her in her 10 years. She was my running companion during my training for 4 marathons, helping me through those long hard runs in terrible conditions.
“She was cwitchie (Welsh for cuddly). She was beautiful. She was a hoover when we dropped food on the floor.
“She inspired my wife and I to go out for regular long walks together – crucial marriage time for us.

“She was funny, and her back roll stole the show on a @bbccountryfile I presented last year. And that’s just a small part of what she gave to us.
“So it was heartbreaking to watch her deteriorate with cancer. We’ll miss her a lot.”
Sean’s GMB co-star Charlotte Hawkins replied: “Oh no, so sorry Sean ?.”
BBC star Anita Rani added: “Sending love to you all Sean. They are so so special. What a lucky soul to have lived with you and your beautiful family. Xxxxxxx.”
