BGT Winner Ashleigh Butler Sobs At Crufts After Winning With New Dog Sully

Britain's Got Talent star Ashleigh Butler has revealed she sobbed after a victory at Crufts this weekend.

Expert dog agility trainer Ashleigh triumphed at Crufts, winning the title of Singles Agility Small with her adorable cross-breed dog Sully.

Looking back at their victory, an emotional Ashleigh tweeted: "Just cried watching Sullivan's champ final win again". Ashleigh won instant fame after winning Britain's Got Talent back in 2012 as part of act Ashleigh and Pudsey, in which she performed energetic acts with her dog Pudsey.

The pair went on to appear on TV shows and on the stage and even had their own movie, Pudsey The Dog: The Movie, which came out in 2014.

However, in 2017, Ashleigh announced the tragic death of Pudsey from leukaemia, saying she would carry on her act with her other dog Sully, but that he would "never become Pudsey".

It looks like Sully is making Ashleigh proud, with the owner sharing plenty of tweets and Instagram posts in honour of her winning pup.

On Instagram, she wrote: "What has just happened. I am in shock. Not only winning the singles on Friday for the third year running, winning the championships today for the second year running, but also winning all THREE rounds today!!!!!!!

"I have so many thank yous but for now my biggest thank you goes to Sullivan for just being incredible."

She also shared a video of Sully's impressive feat as he made his way around a challenging obstacle course, gushing: "Wow Sullivan. Just wow. Small Crufts singles winner for the third year running?! How is that even possible?!

"It is an honour to run you sully, and i love love love stepping onto the start line with you. You give your all in every run, and i am so proud of everything we've achieved together.

"Thank you sully for being your incredible self, i cant explain how much you mean to me".
