Britain's Got Talent champion Pudsey the dog dies

By Francesca Gosling

Britain's Got Talent's 2012 winner Pudsey the dog has died, show bosses have confirmed.

The ITV programme announced the news in a Twitter post yesterday, and included a tribute to Pudsey's owner, Ashleigh Butler.

The message read: "We are saddened to hear that today we lost Pudsey, a most marvellous winner. Our thoughts are with Ashleigh."

Pudsey, a border collie, bichon frise and Chinese crested cross, charmed viewers with a routine to the Mission Impossible theme, and became the first dog act to win the series.

Ashleigh and Pudsey had worked together for 11 years.

In October 2012, a book titled Pudsey: My Autobidography, was released, chronicling the talented pet's rise to fame.

Success continued as he hit the big screen in 2014, taking the leading role in his own movie, Pusdey The Dog: The Movie.
