The TV icon, 64, informed her Instagram followers that the adorable Border Collie cross was recovering from a surgery.  

‘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’,’ she wrote.

Ruth accompanied it with a heartmelting clip of Maggie – who is 14 – coming out of the veterinary room and then some more bits as she cuddled her at home.

The Loose Women alum adopted the pooch with her ex husband Eamonn, 64, back in 2011 as Maggie is said to be as a ‘second child’ to them.

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

‘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.’

The source added the former couple aims for a reasonable deal-breaker ‘without getting any lawyers involved’.

The insider added: ‘She wants to help Eamonn with his situation and their friendship has grown over a period of time. She feels she will be close to him for a long period and is in this for the long haul.’ 

Katie has been seen visiting Eamonn at his rented apartment in South West London from her home in Yorkshire. 

The pair reportedly struck up a friendship over the past couple of years and the publication claims Eamonn has taken her on a safari park trip, to a Manchester United game and a Beyoncé concert.

While his friendship with Katie is not said to be a reason for the marriage breakdown it is understood that Ruth was unaware of her until recently and has decided to take time off work.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ruth was obviously aware that her marriage was crumbling, but as details emerge, her upset has turned to anger.

‘Eamonn’s friend is bowled over by being lavished with attention and kindness from him.’

The pair met via Twitter after the woman commented on a post and it sparked a conversation between the pair.

Friends explained that the woman’s counselling skills include coping with ‘feeling sad’ and ‘separation and divorce’ therefore it seems fitting she will be supporting Eamonn at this time of uncertainty.
