Ashleigh & Pudsey

After their first audition on Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell declared “This is what I’ve been waiting for all my life. You are one of my favourite ever acts”.

Since winning UK’s biggest talent show in 2012 with their breath taking dance numbers, there's been no stopping in Ashleigh Butler and her super dog Pudsey.

They've danced the conga with Kim Kardashian, flown in a private jet to Hollywood with Simon Cowell, released an autobi-dog-raphy, performed for the Queen twice, won numerous awards, appeared on dozens of TV shows across the world, released their own calendar, broken theatre ticket records, performed on award ceremonies, presented TV series, graced dozens of magazine covers, rubbed shoulders with Leonardo Di Caprio at the Cannes Film Festival and have become global film stars.

After winning the show, Simon Cowell flew them in his private jet to Hollywood and New York where they appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, America’s Got Talent, Access Hollywood, Extra with Terri Seymour, Good Morning America and E! News amongst others.

The duo was also invited to perform for the Queen twice. First, at the Epsom Derby in front of a 100,000 strong audience, as well as alongside the best of British acts, in front of Her Majesty for the infamous Royal Variety Show in November 2012,

Shortly after, Pudsey added another title to his impressive CV as a Pawthor. His autobi-dog-raphy hit the book shelves in October 2012 and sold out within 3 days, telling the story about his life leading up to Britain's Got Talent. A different version of the book “A Pup Story” was also released in April 2013 for the younger fans which was accompanied by a book tour across the country.

TV opportunities continued to flood in fast. Their filming schedule was non stop, with Tog Dog Model, Super Famous Animals, CBBC Who Let the Dogs Out & About, Red or Black and Pet School in the can. Ashleigh also got her first presenting role on the CBBC series, Who Let the Dogs Out in Autumn 2012.

Their success didn’t stop there. Pudsey released his own calendar in Dec 2012 starring the VIP – Very Important Pooch. They also starred in the pantomime, Dick Whittington in Woking which saw the theatre break a record in ticket sales. Their popularity saw them return the following year to Manchester and then Bristol in December 2014.

In May 2013, Ashleigh & Pudsey attended the Cannes Film Festival, rubbing shoulders with Hollywood stars Leonardo Di Caprio and Nicole Kidman. They promoted their feature film Pudsey – the Movie, which put Pudsey on the same path as Lassie. The movie hit the cinemas in July 2014 and is a new collaboration between Vertigo Films and Simon Cowell. Pudsey was even voiced by comedian and BGT judge, David Walliams!


Now a multi million pound pooch in his fourth year as Panto king,  there’s no doubting that Ashleigh and Pudsey have made an indelible mark on the entertainment industry and have bigger sights ahead to conquer the world, hand in paw.

Shortly after they presented their own TV show, the 15 part series for CBBC, Who Let the Dogs Out airing in 2012 and returning in Autumn 2014 for another series. In Dec 2012, after breaking theatre record sales in their pantomime, Dick Whittington and the Dog in Woking, they have signed up for another pantomime run this Christmas, this time the big city of Manchester.

Now a multi million pound dog there’s no doubt that Ashleigh and Pudsey have made an indelible mark on the entertainment industry and have bigger sights ahead to conquer the world, hand in paw.
