Britain's Got Talent 2012 winner Ashleigh and Pudsey on the last twelve months

Ashleigh and Pudsey

Britain's Got Talent 2012 winners asking and fancy have spoken about their last whirlwind 12 months.

Schoolgirl Ashley and her pet pooch Pudsey triumphed in last year series, scooping a £500,000 prize and a spot on the royal variety show

Since then, the pair have gone on to wow audiences across the world and Pudsey even has his own movie lined up.

"If I could do it all over again I would. It takes over your life but it’s such an amazing experience," Ashleigh said this month. "It goes so quickly. The whole semi-finals week was such good fun.

"All the contestants were really supportive of each other and I made some really good friends.

Speaking to STV, Ashleigh continued: "I never expected to win. I always thought Jonathan and Charlotte would win. Even when we were standing on the stage at the end I was all ready to congratulate them.

"It was such a surreal moment. It was lucky I had Pudsey so I could hide my face in his fur."

And quizzed on her top moment of the past year, Ashleigh explained: "Everything we have done has been so incredible but probably the Royal Variety Performance. It was an amazing, perfect day, getting to perform alongside some of the biggest stars.

"I was really nervous but Pudsey literally just sleeps until ten minutes before when we wake him up, he goes on stage and dances and then comes off and goes back to sleep again. I have to be nervous for both of us."
