Sheridan Smith is set to present the BBC’s new competitive series Pooch Perfect, it has been revealed.
The Daily Mail reports that the actress, 39, will be looking for the UK’s Top Dog Stylist by hosting a grooming competition alongside her fluffy co-host Stanley.
Featuring 16 professional dog stylists from across the nation, Sheridan will task the groomers with a series of themed challenges each week that will see dogs go through epic transformations to the delight of viewers.
These challenges will vary in style, and their creations will then be revealed on The Dogwalk for the judges to deliberate which of the week’s contenders has impressed them the most.
It is at this stage that the dog’s owners will be able to see their newly transformed pooches for the first time since the stylists put their skills to the test.
Dog fanatic Sheridan is also surely going to enjoy seeing all the various styles that are put forward on the runway.
Sheridan wowed viewers with her ‘incredible’ performance of Cilla Black’s You’re My World during the Royal Variety Show on Tuesday evening.
And ahead of the annual spectacular, she revealed the track was dedicated to her baby son Billy, who she welcomed in May earlier this year.
The singer shared an adorable clip of herself cuddling Billy alongside a caption which read: ‘My world’.
Alongside the video, she wrote: ‘Tonight I’ll be singing You’re My World as Cilla on @itv for @RoyalVariety at 8pm. This is the little man I’m singing it for.’
Viewers went wild for the special performance and many took to Twitter to laud her version of the 1965 track.
Sheridan, who played the Anyone Who Had A Heart hitmaker in the 2014 ITV series, wore a stunning green dress with draped sleeves as she gave her performance.
Pooch Perfect is set to launch on BBC One at 8pm on January 7 2021.
