Britain's Got Talent winner Pudsey has been preparing for his new Hollywood lifestyle - by getting pampered with a makeover.

Owner Ashleigh Butler took her canine pal for a visit to the pet spa at Harrods to enjoy a little luxury ahead of working on his movie debut.

And Ashleigh told Hello! magazine that she had already joked to BGT boss Simon Cowell that she thought her canine pal could land an Oscar for his performance in his movie debut. "That was in a moment of madness. We will have to see," she added.

The bichon frise-border collie-Chinese crested cross is to star in Pudsey: The Movie later this year after already releasing a biography and clocking up appearances on numerous TV shows.

"I'd like to think Pudsey will have his own trailer on the film set," Ashleigh told the magazine.

"He will need to go in there for his little cat naps. He doesn't have any diva demands but we do always ask for him to have a fan to keep him nice and cool.

"If it were up to him though, the whole thing would be filled with food. Lots of sausages and steak."

Ashleigh, 18, also revealed her regrets at not asking the Queen if she could train the royal corgis, after meeting her twice since winning the ITV show in May.

Ashleigh revealed that the Queen asked her for tips on dog training afterwards. "I should have offered to go and train her corgis really, but I was a bit overwhelmed in the moment. I was kicking myself afterwards," she said.

Ashleigh said she has no time for love after devoting herself to work and her beloved pet. "I'm single. A lot of people know that Pudsey will always come first no matter what," she said.

Consolidating your debts and putting yourself on a strict repayment plan are among the possibilities. Instead of worrying how your situation will appear to others, think about what will be best for you. Making a fresh start will draw you and your partner closer together.More
