Party girl Sarah Harding is in the doghouse after her pet pooch caused a right old stink at a posh hotel.
The Girls Aloud star – no stranger to messy behaviour in public – watched in horror as her tiny French bulldog Claude left a trail of poo and wee across the sumptuous interiors of the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
And then, just as Sarah was apologising to furious hotel bosses, protective Claude sank his fangs into Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan’s leg.
A mortified Sarah told us: “I love Claude, he’s my baby. But he can be a nightmare sometimes. We were staying in the Lowry and the thought of leaving him in the room all day and night broke my heart. So I took him for a walk and we nipped into the hotel bar.
“But while I was getting ready he pooed over the carpet in my room, and then again down the hallway as we were going to the lift. I tried to clean it up as best I could.”
Naughty Claude had a few more surprises in store when they turned up at the bar, which was heaving.
Sarah says: “We went to the bar and everyone was there having a drink and then he peed underneath the table. It must have been nerves – he isn’t used to so many people being around. He’s usually not that bad. Kasabian were there and Tom
Meighan thought it was hilarious, and came over to see Claude. But as he went to stroke him, Claude bit him. He only looks little but he is very protective over me, especially with blokes. Thankfully Tom saw the funny side.”
Let’s hope the Lowry do too…
