Little Lola is now recovering from her surgery.

Fans of TOWIE will be familiar with fluffy Lola, who made plenty of appearances on screen – including one very memorable time when she was dyed bright pink by co-stars!

(Lucy assured fans at the time the dye wasn't harmful or permanent.)

Now, gorgeous little Lola – who is also owned by Lucy's ex-boyfriend and TOWIE co-star Mario Falcone - is recovering after surgery.

Lucy told Fabulous magazine that poor Lola needed an emergency amputation following a leg operation that went wrong.

"Her cast was put on too tight and she had to lose her leg," said Lucy. "It's upsetting, but she's fine."

Fans of Lucy were quick to send well wishes to both her and Lola, hoping Lola recovers soon and reiterating Lucy's post that she's still an absolutely beautiful dog.

Get well soon, Lola!
