Well, your unappealing animal, despite having a face for radio, could soon be a TV star, thanks to a brand new, prime-time entertainment documentary being produced for ITV.

Spun Gold TV – one of the UK’s top BAFTA Award-winning TV companies - say that their new show will be a “fun loving” and “warm-hearted” look at how the world’s pet owners love their animals no matter what they look like.

Caroline Quentin [Men Behaving Badly, Jonathan Creek fame] will be touring Britain to find the nation’s most ‘fugly’ fabulously ugly pets and celebrate how unconventional looking pets bring joy and personality to families across Britain.
