    Britain’s Got Talent winner Pudsey the dog has died, ITV has confirmed.

    The border collie, bichon frise and Chinese crested cross won the contest in 2012 with owner Ashleigh Butler.

    A post on the show’s Twitter feed said: “We are saddened to hear that today we lost Pudsey, a most marvellous winner. Our thoughts are with Ashleigh.”

    The pair became famous for their dance routine to the Mission Impossible theme, and were the first dog act to win the competition.

    He then hit the big screen in 2014, taking the leading role in his own movie, Pudsey The Dog: The Movie.
