    In 2015, former Coronation Street actress Kym declared her love for her pup when she posted a sweet selfie with a young Barney on Twitter.

    Captioning the post at the time, she wrote: "Happy national dog day!!! My boy Barney. Love him so much."

    Kym has also spoken openly about her love for dogs over the years and in 2018 the star revealed that she had purchased another pup.

    Talking candidly about her additional family member, she told OK! magazine: "This week we welcomed a new addition to the family – a long-haired, black, white and brown Chihuahua who we’ve called Rico.

    "We already have a short-haired Chihuahua called Lola, so as in Barry Manilow’s song Copacabana we now have a Rico and Lola. He’s very cute.

    "We also have a King Charles spaniel called Barney and he’s taking time to get used to Rico."

    Earlier this year it was revealed that the Strictly star was forced to give up on a rescue dog that she homed for a few months because it wasn't getting along with the other pups in her family.

    A spokeswoman for Kym said rescue dog Oliver was too "enthusiastic and boisterous" for pet chihuahua, Charlie.
