Britain’s Got Talent winner Pudsey has got his paws on a book deal and is heading for the bestseller lists.
The bichon frise-Border collie-Chinese crested cross will tell all in Pudsey: My Autobidography.
The dog, along with owner Ashleigh Butler, won this year’s Britain’s Got Talent and is flying to the United States this weekend in search of success across the Atlantic.
Ashleigh, 17, said the pair were finally getting used to all the attention.
The teenager from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, who faced the cameras today with her pet, said: “Pudsey is used to it because he loves attention, but we’re just having really good fun.
“He loves the camera, if he sees a camera he automatically just stops and poses so he is a little bit of a natural, but he also knows that if he gets his picture taken he gets food so that may be one reason why he likes it.”
The pair, who charmed UK viewers with their routines, will be appearing on America’s Got Talent and Jay Leno’s show while they are in the US.
But Ashleigh said she wasn’t worried about the attention going to the dog’s head. She said: “Pudsey might be a show-off, but he isn’t a diva. He likes the attention but he’s not big headed.”
Ashleigh and Pudsey won the ITV show earlier this year, beating favourites Jonathan and Charlotte, by charming viewers with their fleet-footed routine to the Mission Impossible theme and took home the 500,000-pound prize.
The book, published by Little, Brown, will describe their rise to fame.
