Alongside a gallery of snaps of the golden retriever, Vicky penned: ‘Today was the scariest day we’ve had since getting Milo…
‘He was out with his lovely dog walker and as he dropped off one of Milo’s friends, someone stole his van with my baby and some of his friends in the back.. We got the call at this point and I instantly just broke down, sobbing crying and fearing the worst.. I’ve literally never felt fear like it.’
She continued: ‘Long story short guys, the van was found abandoned by the police on some estate with the fur babies still in the back thank god. But honestly, that period of not knowing and worrying was just horrific – I felt so helpless and devastated.

‘It’s all a matter with the police now, but if you have any information please get in touch- it happened in the South Woodford area and the police have been great.
‘Luckily this ended happily this time but things could have been very different. Milo is a resilient and brave boy and seems fine after his traumatic afternoon but I just can’t spend time thinking about the alternative.
Vicky continued to express her anger: ‘I don’t understand what type of person steals another persons property, and worse still, when they realise that there are living, breathing animals in the back- abandons them in a hot van in the middle of nowhere not caring what happens to them.
Overwhelmed: Vicky shared a long Instagram message detailing the ordeal
‘I’d call them animals but they don’t deserve it- they are Utter scumbags. Should be ashamed of themselves. You make me sick.
‘Milo is now back with his mammy and daddy and being spoilt rotten as he should be and we are just so happy and grateful… Thankyou all for your messages of concern.’
Several of Vicky’s famous friends took to the comment section to send their best wishes including X Factor winner Alexandra Burke who penned: ‘Oh my goodness. I’m so sorry babe. Thankfully all the fur babies are safe! But my goodness that’s scary! Thinking of you xxx’
