A skateboarding dog is set to star in 'Britain's Got Talent' tomorrow night (14.05.11).

Lakeland Terrier Bodhi - who landed his owner Jonathan Fell with an £80 fine after running over two women, and has been threatened with a pet restraining order - stunned the judges and audience alike when he auditioned for the ITV1 show by managing to totally to ruin someone else's act.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bodhi came on and just skated all over the stage. He was met with a baffled reception from the judges and left.

"But he obviously fancied more time to show off - and he shot back on during an opera act."

Jonathan takes Bodhi out skateboarding near their Brighton home but was soon hit with a council fine after his beloved dog smashed into two passers - one of whom was pregnant.

However, Jonathan - who has since been reminded by Brighton & Hove City Council that dogs must be kept on leads - insists Bodhi was just over-excited, adding: "Bodhi loves skateboarding and is not a criminal. It makes people laugh."
