In the world of weird weddings, to add to corpses getting hitched and people marrying trees, earlier in the week, 47-year-old Amanda Rodgers revealed that she married her dog Sheba in a wedding ceremony.

And there the story may have laid buried in the local papers.

But after appearing on This Morning, Twitter is abuzz with talk of Amanda's nuptials.

The divorcee, originally from Oregon, spoke to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield saying that she'd always loved Jack Russells, believing them to be intuitive.

Talking about when they first met, she said: "I'd been looking for a dog for quite some time and thought I should get a rescue - none of the rescuers would have me because I was single, I lived alone in a flat, I worked full time.

"So I thought I'd rescue a dog from a breeder."

Amanda continued: "She was two weeks old so was new to the world of love. I knew I wanted a girl and a black and white one."

At this point, some of you are screaming: "But she married her DOG!"

Here are some tweets about the show:

Amanda isn't taking her relationship with Sheba literally because she very definitely is still dating (human) men. But four-year-old Sheba has to approve of them first.

The Mirror reported Schofield as saying: "Do you think she knows?"

"Yes, and I am totally her b****," Amanda replied, without a trace of humour.
