Geri Horner has revealed she has lost her pet dog Daddy after 18 years together, sharing a tribute to the pup on her Instagram.

The former Spice Girl told fans how her pet had kept her from feeling lonely and how he was her first baby before she welcomed daughter Bluebell in 2006.

She wrote: "Goodbye to my special little friend, Daddy the dog."

The first photo in the montage showed a blonde Geri smiling as she held Daddy close to her. Another shot showed him lounging on the sofa and one saw him cuddled up to her husband Christian.

Fans flooded the post with their messages of condolences, with one saying: "Oh no!!!!! Daddy was the sweetest! I still remember when I met him in 2004!! RIP sweetie."

Geri is a big animal lover and regularly shares snaps walking her dogs and tending to animals on the farm.

Fans recently noticed how Geri has transformed from her wild Spice Girl image to a wardrobe of all white.

Perhaps an unusual choice of colour to pick considering she lives in the countryside, Geri hasn't touched colour – unless it's black – since early 2019, and wears it to tend to smelly farm animals, drive dirty tractors and walk their many dogs.

According to some sources Geri, who married F1 boss Christian Horner in 2014, decided to adopt a new signature look to appear "clean and ladylike", and the singer has even addressed it in one of her posts.

Sharing a snap of herself covered head-to-toe in mud while wearing a knee-length hooded puffa jacket and white jeans, Geri pointed out her error in the caption but didn't seem to mind the mess.

"Guess what happened to me today? But I’m still alright /all white!"
