Una heartbroken at death of beloved dog Tyson

THE SATURDAYS siren Una Healy has revealed her heartbreak at the death of her pet dog.

The singer from Tipperary was away on holidays in Ibiza with her boyfriend, English rugby player Ben Foden, when she was told the devastating news.

Una's mum Anne had to tell her that her boxer dog died at home.

"RIP Tyson, so sad my Mother just broke the news to me that he has passed away," Una tweeted.

The rising star and Ben, who are living together in St Albans, near London, recently adopted two puppies named Jackson and Bono.

"I musically named my dogs after the king of pop, Jackson and the living Irish rock legend that is Bono," she explained.

But the animal lover has spoken about her strong bond with the family pet and posted a photo from when she was at home with Tyson and her cat Mushroom.

While on holidays, Una revealed the couple had a minor accident while larking about in the pool.

"Myself and Ben made a great attempt at the Patrick Swayze dirty dancing lift today in the pool, sadly it ended in a minor nose bleed," she said. However, she revealed on her Twitter page that Ben was suffering from just a minor injury.

"Got a patient here with a sore nose, only joking he is fine," she added.

The rugby WAG said that she is eager to get back up on the stage with the rest of The Saturdays.

The couple have been making the most of their time together, relaxing on the beach, trying out jet skis and revelling in exclusive nightclub Hed Kandi in Ibiza.
