Toy deal for Pudsey the dog

Ashleigh Butler's pet Pudsey is to be made into a cuddly toy

Pudsey the dog has put his pawprint to a licensing deal which will see him turned into a cuddly toy.

The four-legged star, who won Britain's Got Talent with owner Ashleigh Butler two years ago, will also feature on greetings cards and gifts under the deal with the firm Carte Blanche, which has created Moshi Monsters spin-offs.

The much-loved animal can currently be seen in his film debut, Pudsey The Dog: The Movie, which was released in cinemas last week.

Ashleigh said: "I'm thrilled at the prospect of Pudsey coming to life in a range of consumer products. Pudsey and I share a very special relationship and it's lovely to know that other people will now get to know the lovable, cheeky character that plays such an important part in my life."

Jonathan Shalit, Pudsey's manager, said: "Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have never had their names in the title of a movie - but Pudsey has. This is the popularity and stature of Pudsey. And now he is taking his popularity to the next logical step."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

You should be justifiably proud of your progress. It isn't easy to break a bad habit, but you've managed to do so. A perverse side of your personality may tempt you to fall back on the old ways, just to give yourself another challenge. Ignore these impulses. Channel your energy in a positive direction instead. Learning to make clothes, furniture or jewellery will be a great use of your creative ability. You'll be especially successful if you use old, discarded materials in your work.More
