After the waiting and wondering, Simon was not disappointed when Pudsey and Ashleigh Butler completed an electrifying performance at the BGT finals last weekend on Saturday May 12th 2012.
Pudsey stood on two legs, jumped into Ashley’s arms, completed perfect spins and even ventured over to the judging panel desk, where the four celebrity judges got a close-up glimpse of this superstar groomed pooch. After the completion of numerous performances from opera singers, classical singers, dance groups and synchronized swimmers, the voting lines closed.

Speaking about the triumph, Simon said “My life is now complete.” The wonderful duo scooped up a grand prize of £500,000 and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform in front of the royal family at the Royal Variety Performance. Various interviews and photo shoots are lined up for Pudsey and Ashley, as well as multiple bookings at high-profile events.
