Pete Davidson has shared the sad news that his dog has died, aged just two.

The comedian - whose highly anticipated return to Saturday Night Live was canceled earlier this week amid the writers' strike - said he felt ‘broken’ by the death of his dog Henry, who he got during the pandemic with his mum and sister.

He said his four-legged friend was a huge fan of his SNL sketches, and would regularly tune in and ‘smile and make noises’ when Davidson appeared on screen.

Davidson, 29, broke the news via the Instagram account of Dave Sirus, a writer on his new Peacock show Bupkis, saying Henry had been ‘very sick’ but did not specify how or why.

Sharing a carousel of photos of Henry, the star wrote: "Hey guys. I know today is the Bupkis premiere day but I wanna use today to remember my dog Henry.

"Yesterday we lost a key member of the Davidson family. Henry was only 2 years old but unfortunately got very sick very fast.

"My mom, sister and I got Henry at the beginning of the pandemic and he saved our lives.

"Not sure id even be around without him. He was the happiest and sweetest dog ever."

Davidson continued: "He used to get excited when he saw me and would pee everywhere. When I was working at SNL my mom would send me videos of him watching, smiling and making noise when I came on screen.

"I don't ever really watch any of my stuff with anyone as I'm far too scared but I didn't mind watching with Henry. He was truly the best.

"My mom, sister and I are broken and will miss him forever. We love you Henry. Thank you for making our lives fuller and reminding me what actually matters."

The comedian won't be hosting this weekend's Saturday Night Live as the NBC prime-time show will be completely off the air due to the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike.

Season 48 of the award-winning show was set to hit our screens on Saturday (6 May) with former cast member, Davidson, debuting as host alongside rapper Lil Uzi Vert as the musical guest.

However, fans may have to wait a little longer to see their favorite stars take to the stage as the comedy show joins a number of other late-night shows that will shut down following the nationwide strike.

The network will instead air reruns of SNL to fill the slot for the time being.
