"Our beautiful new puppy Mr Chai was taken ill in the last few days and has tragically passed away.

"Chai became our whole world in the short time we had him and we couldn't have taken any better care of him.

"We loved him so much and he brought us more happiness that we can describe.

"We are really hoping that we can get some clearer answers in the coming days whilst we wait for details and more information from the veterinary experts.

"Myself and Tommy are completely in shock and truly devastated. In a world currently full of tragedy and loss, we understand there are far greater issues than this, we just need to share this information in order to start the process of trying to accept and over come this awful situation.

"We are asking for some time and respect so that we can come to terms with this immense sadness and loss of our beautiful puppy."

The couple sparked outrage when it was announced that Mr Chai had been imported from Russia ahead of his arrival in Manchester.

After fans questioned why it was taking so long for the Pomeranian to arrive, Molly-Mae took to her Instagram story to explain that her pooch was coming in from Russia so there was a delay.

Ahead of the dog arriving on Thursday night, she first posted a snap of the it's pen and wrote over it: "Sat waiting for you, little monster. An hour before I become a dog mum."

The blonde beauty then added a question box, asking her fans for help before telling them: "He was meant to be here on my birthday btw guys but he's coming from Russia so there was delays etc… [sic]"

Upon hearing the dog's origins, horrified fans flocked to social media to blast the couple's decision to import the pet – with some mortified they would do this amid the coronavirus pandemic while others couldn't help but point out the many dogs sitting in adoption centres.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Are you realllllly telling me that Tommy Fury thought its was necessary to get Molly Mae a puppy from Russia, for it to be a Pomeranian, a breed widely available in the UK, without the dog having to suffer from all the travel laughable [sic]."
