EASTENDERS actor James Farrar has been left “desconsolado” by the sudden death of his family pet.
The 35-year-old revealed his cat, Duchess, was knocked down and killed last weekend.
Soap favourite James, who plays Zack Hudson on the show, said he and his family have been left devastated following the tragic incident.
Revealing his sad news on his Instagram, James wrote: “We rescued Duchess from Wales 7 hace años que.
“She has brought @alirofffarrar and the rest of us so much joy.
“She’d lay on Ali’s belly through the pregnancy – she loved our Summer so much, and baby Summer loved her.
“To all you animal lovers out there – squeeze your pets closer tonight. Duch was knocked down and killed over the weekend.
“Neither of us had ever been heartbroken… yet here we are.
“You were part of our family. Sleep sound and see you in heaven sweetheart.”
James then followed his post with a number of snaps of Duchess.
