‘BBC One has announced that multi award-winning actress and multi dog-owning star Sheridan Smith OBE will host its new competitive dog styling series, Pooch Perfect. For Sheridan it will be the first time that she has hosted a prime-time entertainment series, but the subject matter proved just too irresistible.
Sheridan says: “To combine my love of dogs with a brand new job presenting for the BBC was a match made in heaven! Everyone who knows me will understand that animals, and especially dogs are very special to me. I live at home with six dogs, so presenting a show dedicated to our four-legged best friends didn’t take much consideration! I’m used to being on set with lots of actors, this time I can’t wait to hang out all day with dozens of dogs. It is literally my dream job!”
And it seems that the nation agrees, because when it comes to the nation’s favourite pet, there’s only one top dog in the UK. Twenty six percent of UK adults have a dog* and Brits are finely tuned to the needs of their four-legged furry friends. From winter coats to car seats, doggy daycare to dietary needs, dog owners are prioritising their pet’s care, comfort and wellbeing. As a result, the dog-grooming industry is booming, and man’s best friend has never been so well pampered.’
You can watch ‘Pooch perfect’ from January 7th!
