Singer gutted over theft of his beloved mutt


Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder is devastated that his dog has been kidnapped.

Rare Lhasa Apso mutt Oscar was stolen when the singer was filming a cameo appearance on Channel 4 show Shameless in Manchester.

‘I’m gutted,’ Shaun, 45, says. ‘I hope we find him soon. Life’s not the same without him.’

Insiders fear a local gang might have taken the pooch.

‘There were a whole bunch of dodgy-looking characters around when they filmed,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘The fans were laughing because you wouldn’t expect a hard man like Shaun to have such a cute dog.’
