This week on The Only Way Is Essex, Bobby Norris mourned the loss of his dog, who was killed by another, larger, dog while on a walk in the park.
Viewers were touched by Bobby Norris' reaction to the loss of his Yorkshire terrier Beau, as he broke down in tear telling friends what had happened.

The cast of Towie rallied around to take care of the grieving Bobby, and decided to give Beau a right royal send off.
Beau's funeral was heart-rending, and Bobby said goodbye at the pet crematorium. Bobby made a brief speech, saying, "Thank you Beau for being the best dog ever".
Later, the group threw a wake for little Beau and everyone wore bows to commemorate the pooch.
Jon even read a beautiful poem, which was only slightly upstaged by Gemma Collins making a return to the show.

Felt a bit like when Gemma came in, kind of ruined Jon's nice moment there #TOWIE

It was all very touching, until Megan Mckenna absolutely killed the vibe by fighting.

The episode came after Bobby recently appeared on TV show Loose Women to warn others to look out for their small dogs in public spaces.
