'Britain's Got Talent' star Pudsey is to be given a voice in 'Pudsey: The Movie'.
Following a series of secret castings, bosses have selected a top British actor to lend their vocal talents to the dancing dog - who wowed viewers with his spectacular moves on the ITV talent show last year - as he stars alongside his owner and partner in crime Ashleigh Butler in the film.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The name is being kept hush-hush for now. But he's A-list - a national treasure. And his voice is iconic. Fans are going to love him."
Several Hollywood stars are expected to make cameo roles in the production, which is a joint project between Vertigo Films and Simon Cowell's Syco Entertainment.
Rupert Preston, Vertigo's Managing Director, said: "It will be a great feel good fun entertainment for all the family."
Pudsey's manager Jonathan Shalit has previously said the movie is a "hugely exciting next step" in the clever canine's career.
He said: "The British people love Pudsey. He has met the Queen and was invited to 10 Downing Street by the Prime Minister.
"This represents a hugely exciting next step."
