KATIE Price's beloved dog Sparkle has died after running onto a busy road, The Sun Online can reveal.
The 41-year-old reality star's Alsatian escaped from her home while she was away and was hit by a car in a heartbreaking accident on the A24, which runs nearby.
Sparkle is the half-sister of Pricey's other dog Bear – both of whom have escaped from her West Sussex house before.
Last year Bear ended up on the busy London-to-Worthing dual carriageway that runs by the 'mucky mansion' and was saved by a passing police officer.
Sparkle was luckier that time, managing to make it back to the star's house on her own.
A source told The Sun Online last year: "Katie really needs to shore up her garden as it's only a matter of time before something bad happens if the dogs keep escaping.
"Luckily motorists spotted the dogs and drove carefully while they were loose and a policeman was on hand to help out."
In February Bear ran onto the same busy dual carriageway – a year after her previous dog was killed by a car.
The fearless dog hopped a fence near the star’s £2million nine-bedroom Sussex mansion and ran out among speeding traffic – but luckily a passer-by stopped and took him to a vet.
The A24 is the same stretch of road where one of Katie’s horses died after escaping from a field in 2017.
It comes after The Sun revealed Katie’s dog Queenie was allegedly mowed down and killed by a delivery driver dropping off pizza to a neighbour last year.
The former glamour model said she was devastated over the death and accused the driver of a hit-and-run.
The telly star’s husband Kieran Hayler, 30, rang the pizza chain to complain and accuse their worker of being responsible.
However, the driver denied hitting the animal.
