Britain’s Got Talent winner Pudsey gets honoured with a graffiti portrait by BANKSY

Pudsey fans were yappy after graffiti artist Banksy appeared to have honoured him in his home town.

The life-sized sketch, which shows the loveable mutt doing his trademark trick of standing on his back legs with his paws in the air, mysteriously appeared overnight last Friday.

It was daubed on the side of a white-washed building in Pebble Lane, Wellingborough, Northants., close to where Pudsey’s owner Ashleigh Butler, 17, lives.

The Border Collie, Bichon Frise and Chinese Crested – who turned seven last month – shot to fame after winning Britain’s Got Talent last May.

The dancing duo became Simon Cowell’s favourite act and wowed millions of TV viewers – including the Queen – with their incredible routines and energetic tricks.

Pretty Ashleigh, who has owned Pudsey since she was 11, said: “We are of course flattered and it is quite weird that graffiti of Pudsey has appeared on a wall.

“I am flattered but of course I cannot condone it [graffiti].

“I have had a couple of texts already from people who have spotted it.”

Last month it emerged a film will be made about Pudsey which will be co-produced by Cowell’s entertainment firm Syco and Vertigo Films.
