Ulrika Jonsson has showcased brand new tattoos tributes to her pet pooches who sadly passed away.

The former weather presenter, who previously said she 'would love a toyboy', took to her Instagram stories to show off her new inkings.

The 53-year-old shared a topless snap to show the new tattoos on her upper back and shoulder area.

The inking depicts a paw print from her beloved dog Dexter and his name.


Above that, the television presenter has the words 'Mother of bullies' inked on her shoulder.

Ulrika's new tattoos come after she shared her regret over not speaking out about her experience with domestic abuse.

She praised Mel B for her moving performance in a video campaign with Women's Aid and discussed how it reminded her of her own experiences.

The Swedish star said she was approached by domestic abuse charities to speak about what happened to her but she decided not to.

Writing in a column for The Sun Online, Ulrika recalled: “When the story broke of my head’s collision with Collymore’s foot and I was asked by domestic abuse charities to speak out, time and time again, I did not.

"I did not because I felt that his one flash of hatred and fury felt so minimal, so reduced, so insignificant when I measured it against the suffering of other women who were being pummelled daily.

"I would have felt fraudulent, attention-seeking and as if I were exploiting the situation."

Ulrika added that she now “regrets” that decision and added: “I wish I had had the broad shoulders to carry my pain forth and explain that attached to the striker’s foot was a long list of moments in time and incidents when the mental persecution and torment he meted out daily, had damaged me more than his kicks.

"I wish I had drawn attention to the fact that abuse comes in so many forms and not just the physical punishment. But the psychological and emotional destruction can often be so much worse."

The model, who previously showed support for Stacey Solomon, continued: "People did, without doubt, look at me as if I was stupid for ending up in such a relationship.

"Women from any walk of life could find themselves in the situation, which is why the Women’s Aid film is so crucial."
