Ant and Dec are rowing over 'Britain's Got Talent's dancing dog Chandi as they can't decide if she is better than 2008's pooch performer Gin
Ant and Dec are rowing over 'Britain's Got Talent's dancing dog.
The show's hosts are impressed by performing pooch Chandi and her owner Tina Humphrey - who appeared on Saturday's (17.04.10) audition show - but admit they have clashed over whether the act is better than 2008 finalist Gin the dog and her owner Kate Nicholas.
Ant and Dec wrote on their blog: "Simon's illness meant he missed out on one of the best dog acts we've ever seen on the show, Tina and her best friend Chandi. They were brilliant weren't they!? Simon is a huge dog lover and is still gutted to this day that he wasn't there for their audition.
"Their appearance has created a bit of an argument between the two of us though, we can't decide whether Kate and Gin the dog from series two are better than Tina and Chandi. We started to argue about it and we can't quite agree."
Chandi has appeared on several TV shows - including Graham Norton's 'When Will I Be Famous' and 'Blue Peter' - and other 'Britain's Got Talent' contestants are reportedly worried her previous exposure will give her an unfair advantage.
A source said: "Chandi was a big hit with viewers but she's not exactly an undiscovered talent.
"Viewers who saw Chandi on other shows will already know her talent, and will be reaching for their phones to vote for her when the live shows begin."
Gin's owner Kate has already hit out at Chandi, labelling her a "showbiz dog".
She blasted: "Chandi has grown up appearing at dancing dog shows and on TV. She is a showbiz dog.
"What is unique about Gin is that she grew up with me and I taught her all those tricks and dance moves at home.
"The first time she'd ever been on a stage or faced an audience was on 'BGT' back in 2008.
"Chandi has been doing it for years."
