Ruth captioned the video: “Maggie had a little wart removed this morning under sedation so she’s feeling a bit sorry for herself this afternoon! Lots of TLC from Mummy required. Thank you @stgeorgesveterinarycentre for looking after our precious girl”

The pooch, 14, was adopted by the former This Morning presenters adopted in 2011.

She is said to be like a “second child” to them, even appearing with the pair on the ITV show.

A source told The Sun: “Maggie is like a daughter to them. They dote on her. But she’s getting on and they know she needs stability.

“It’s a case of who can give her that. Eamonn adores her and Maggie’s been such a support during his health woes. The thought of giving her up is heartbreaking to him.

“But if Ruth is able to get out and about and walk her more, then it may well be that she gets Maggie in the split.

“They are adamant this won’t come to what Ant and Lisa went through and they won’t be getting lawyers involved.”

Last month The Sun revealed that Eamonn has grown close to relationship counsellor Katie Alexander, 42, in the wake of his split.

The two have been on numerous outings together in the last year.

Katie met Eamonn on X/Twitter in 2015 after she commented on a post and it sparked a conversation.

She has been visiting Eamonn in his rented apartment, and he also attended an event near her home in Yorkshire.
