The cute pooch gets the most viewers' votes in semi-final

Pudsey the dog was the star of the first Britain’s Got Talent semi-final tonight.

The top three acts voted by the public were Ashleigh And Pudsey, Only Boys Aloud and The Mend.

As Pudsey and teenage owner Ashleigh Butler got the most votes, the duo’s place was assured.

The judges couldn’t choose between Welsh choir Only Boys Aloud and The Mend – who got 2 votes each – so the next highest public vote decided the matter, with Only Boys Aloud going through.

Cross-breed pooch, 6, Pudsey – a mix of Border Collie, Bichon Frise and Chinese Crested – looked tired out at the end of the night after his impressive dance routine.

He could hardly keep his eyes open as the results were revealed.
