“Rhona’s been out there ages,” Sam said as the vet looked at the sow.

“Dolores wasn’t even a twinkle in her mum’s eye when you were born in that barn,” he told Belle.

“We’ve always had pigs. When Butch used to pick on me, I used to go and chat to them, talk through all the things I was going to say to himfloor him with my verbal daggers.

“But then Butch would come out with a bucket of swill and one of the girls would end up with a cabbage leaf on her head like a jaunty hat, and then we’d be happy friends again.”

At that point Rhona walked in looking downcast with the news the pig’s heart was failing.

Sam told her: “I know it’s bad but what can you do? Whatever it takes.

“Anything to give her more time. I don’t want to let her go. I’ve heard steroids can help. She’s the last pig we’ve got left.

“I know I should’ve sent her for slaughter. Lisa trusted me with them, she’d be spinning.”

Rhona went to go and put Dolores to sleep, and Sam joined her saying: “Come on then, she’ll be calm for me, I’m her family.”

Belle added: “Let’s go together.”

But as they left to say goodbye to Dolores, Lydia broke down in tears and viewers weren’t far behind.

On a écrit: “Poor Sam [crying face emoji].”

A second said in disbelief: “Don’t say Sam’s pig’s died…”

Un troisième ajouté: “C'est ça – I’m upset. Not about Paddy, Chloe or anyone. THE PIG HAS DIED!”

While one fan pleaded for the pig to be saved, ajouter: “Obsessed with the pig saga, save her!”
