'Britain's Got Talent' winner Ashleigh Butler wants her dancing dog Pudsey to star in a Hollywood film.
The 17-year-old dog lover and her pet pooch were victorious in Saturday night's (12.05.12) after winning over the judges and viewers with their routine to the 'Mission: Impossible' themetune and now Ashleigh has set her sights on Pudsey appearing in movies.
Ashleigh - who has been inspired by Uggie, the dog who wowed audiences in Oscar-winning blockbuster 'The Artist' - said: "It's always been a massive dream of mine to get into film work with Pudsey. I thought Uggie was amazing and I think Pudsey would be perfect for something like that role. If he sees a camera he looks straight at it and starts posing. He loves attention.
"I've watched all the dog films like Lassie and Greyfriars Bobby. If he was in their league it would be brilliant."
As part of their victory, Ashleigh and Pudsey won £500,000 and she has promised to give half the winnings to her dog and also buy him a diamond lead.
She told The Sun newspaper: "He was sitting on the bed and I told him: 'Pudsey, you've just won £250,000.' He knows that he's done something good but he doesn't know what. He wouldn't know what to spend the money on so I'll probably have to spend it for him.
"I lost one of his leads during the semi-final so he needs a new one. He loves his bling so maybe I'll get him one with diamonds."
