Britain's Got Talent winner Ashleigh Jade Butler and her new dog Sully have competed in the show's All Star series.

Ashleigh won BGT in 2012 with her pet pooch Pudsey, who sadly passed away in 2017.

On Monday night, she appeared on America's Got Talent: The Champions, representing the UK.

The brand new series features acts from Got Talent series across the world, competing together to be crowned the ultimate champion.

Ashleigh performed with new dog Sully, who was born a year after she and Pudsey won BGT.

Reflecting on her time with Pudsey on Britain's Got Talent, Ashleigh said: "He was definitely an attention seeker. Britain fell in love with him. We were kind of thrown into this world that we knew nothing about. We had our own kids TV show, we performed in front of a Queen. My dog had its own film, no one can say that."

"When Pudsey was eleven, he seemed tired and didn't want to eat. We knew something wasn't right.

"The vet confirmed to us that it was cancer and said there was nothing we can do... and we had to say goodbye. He touched so many people, he did so much for me and my family. We're very grateful."

"Sully learnt off of Pudsey. Sully looked up to Pudsey. I'm a little bit worried, he's never performed in front of an audience this big. I have to prove myself in a way, I'm coming back with a different dog," Ashleigh said.

Ashleigh and Sully's performance won praise from the judges but unfortunately she wasn't one of the two acts who made it through.

Extreme Knife Throwers Deadly Games and opera singer Cristina Ramos were the contestants who made it through the second heat. Other acts performing were singing Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, singer Courtney Hadwin, Jump rope dancers DDF Crew, dancers Light Balance, comedian Piff the Magic Dragon, comic Taylor Williamson and juggler Viktor Kee.

Last week's first heat saw Susan Boyle receive Mel B's golden buzzer directly after her performance, seeing her through to the finals, along with comedian Preacher Lawson.

Other acts still to compete for Britain's Got Talent include the first ever winner, opera singer Paul Potts, as well as most recent champion, Lost Voice Guy.

More former BGT contestants appearing on the show including miniature magician Issy Simpson, roller skating performers Billy & Emily England and pianist Tokio Myers.

The show airs on NBC in the States and on Netflix in the UK.
