Pet pre-nups - who would Maggie choose?
On today’s show, we will be talking about the growing number of couples requiring legal advice when it comes to gaining custody of their pets after a break-up.
We Brits are a nation of animal lovers, so when a relationship or a marriage breaks down, who gets custody of our four-legged friends?
David Walliams posted pictures of him and his dog, Bert at the seaside at the weekend, following his divorce from model Lara Stone. And he’s not the only celeb to have put the doggy in the middle, Amber Herd and Johnny Depp are currently fighting over their Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo and after Cheryl split from Ashley, all she wanted from him were their dogs, Coco and Buster.
Today we meet a former couple who have recently split but share custody of their pug Nutella. They’re joined by divorce lawyer Vanessa Lloyd Platt who handled the very first pet-nup in the UK and has advice for them.
Our presenting duo are happily married and share their beloved dog Maggie. But who would Maggie choose between Eamonn and Ruth if she had to? Let us know by voting in our This Morning poll.
