‘I married my dog and he makes me happier than my first husband ever did’

Amanda, from Brixton, London went on ITVs This Morning show telling hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Wiloughby they were “meant to be”.

Amanda Rodgers decided to marry her dog Sheba in a special service attended by 200 well-wishers.

Amanda said: “Sheba had been in my life for years, making me laugh and comforting me when I was feeling low. I couldn’t think of anything more I’d need from a life partner. He even got down on one leg for the proposal.”

She added: ”The day was wonderful, more fun than the marriage.

I gave him a kiss to seal the deal and then everyone threw confetti. It was a wonderful moment.”
