"I'd call his name, 'Alfie! Alfie!' and it broke my heart because he'd hear my voice and would jump off Mum's lap and run to the front door."

Naw!

''Mum would have to say to him, 'No Alfie, she's not here', '' Mollie added.

Meanwhile, band mate Frankie, 24, says she missed her pup so much while she was on the other side of the world that she got her Mum to text her updates.

She added to We Love Pop magazine: ''My mum sent me loads of pictures of the dogs every day, with cringey messages like 'Hi mummy, we miss you!'''

And on the subject of all things cringey, that's given us PAWS for thought... *guffaw*
