The touching post didn't go unnoticed by BBC co-star Naga, who rushed to share her condolences.

In view of her 276,400 followers, she wrote: "So sorry x."

Fans rushed to share similar messages, with one commenting: "Beautiful dog . They do become part of the family losing them hurts the most."

Another posted: "So so sorry! What a beautiful dog Olly was.Take care of yourself."

While a third added: "Will miss you so much beautiful Olly."

The post comes as Naga held back tears whilst announcing Bill Turnbull's death live on air today.

Naga and co-presenter Charlie Stayt were briefed on the tragic news during BBC Breakfast.

Bill – who previously hosted the BBC One show – passed away following a battle with prostate cancer.

Paying tribute to her former colleague, Naga told viewers: "Of course all of us here sending love and support to Bill's family, to Sesi his wife, and I think today after we've gotten over the shock of this, we will start remembering the really funny things that Bill did.

"Just like when I presented with him, his energy was amazing. He came into this programme and threw everything at it, every single day.

"He was funny when we sat here on the sofa, he was a brilliant journalist, and he loved this programme and he loved serving you, the audience. So I'm sure you will miss him, but we certainly will too."

Charlie then added: "He was a wise head, but he didn't take himself too seriously when he sat here, which is a great combination."

Naga, 47, and Charlie, 60, usually host BBC Breakfast together from Thursday to Saturday.
