Hunt for UK’s Top Dog Stylist heads to Dock10 with Sheridan Smith


BBC One will be filming its new competitive reality entertainment TV series, Pooch Perfect, at Dock10.

The programmes will be hosted by multi-award-winning actress, and dog-lover, Sheridan Smith. It is the first time that Smith has presented a prime-time entertainment show.

“To combine my love of dogs with a brand new job presenting for the BBC was a match made in heaven!” she said.

“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!”

The 8×60 minute shows are produced by Seven Studios UK and will feature 10 pairs of professional dog stylists, who’ll take part in a series of themed challenges to create “epic” transformations of pets. These will be judged by celebrity guest judges.


“I cannot imagine anything more fun than being in a studio with Sheridan Smith and a whole load of scruffy dogs,” added Damon Pattison, Creative Director of Seven Studios UK.

“This is going to be the happiest show and as the first original commission for Seven Studios UK, I’m utterly delighted to be bringing it to BBC One.”

The format was created by Seven Studios’ UK Head of Development, Nikki Pinkus, Creative Director, Damon Pattison and by Sonya Wilkes, Co-Head of Unscripted for Seven Studios Australia.

Pattison will Executive Produce the UK series, which is also in production for Seven Network in Australia, hosted by Hollywood actress Rebel Wilson.
