She’s more known for posting bikini snaps, but Elizabeth Hurley gave her Instagram followers a very different insight into her life after sharing her latest heartbreaking photos.

The 52-year-old mum took to social media with pics of her and 15-year-old son Damian looking somber and sad.

With the pair clutching shovels, Liz revealed the family had been forced to say goodbye to their beloved dog Lucy.

The British stunner is known for her love of dogs, crediting her fur babies for helping her keep in shape as she takes them for walks every day.

“I have three Labradors and a spaniel, all of whom are a lot fitter than me,” she told Amuse magazine in 2012.

“I’m in love with them all and they all sleep with me.'
