Following the shocking news Kirstie Alley passed away after a short battle with colon cancer, the much-loved actress is being remembered by her fans, friends and loved ones.

Including former co-star John Travolta, who took to social media to pay an emotional tribute to his "special" friend.

Alongside a stunning throwback photo of Alley and another picture of them smiling at one another, the 68-year-old actor wrote: "Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had.

"I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again."

Travolta and Alley had appeared opposite one another in the Look Who's Talking films - 1989's Look Who's Talking, 1990's Look Who's Talking Too and 1993's Look Who's Talking Now - in which they played James and Mollie, respectively.

The actor — who also lost his wife, Kelly Preston, to cancer back in 2020 — later followed up his tribute with a clip from Look Who’s Talking where he and Alley danced and shared a kiss on his Instagram Stories.

Alley's death marks the latest personal tragedy for Travolta, who lost his friend and Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John earlier this summer following her death at 73 after a cancer battle.
