Strictly Come Dancing 2012: BGT's Ashleigh denies rumours

Ashleigh and Pudsey (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

Britain's Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler has denied rumours she's set to appear on Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

The schoolgirl won £500,000 in the BGT final earlier this year with her dancing dog Pudsey.

Reports had linked the 17-year-old schoolgirl to the BBC One series later this year, with tabloids claiming Pudsey would be cheering Ashleigh on from the sidelines!

But speaking to Digital Spy, Ashleigh denied the rumours, but said she'd "love" to be on the show in future.

"I did see [the rumours] and, you know, I haven't got time to go on the show," she told the website today. "But yeah I'd love to do it. Maybe next year, you never know. That would be amazing.

"I'm pretty sure that [Pudsey] could come to rehearsals, tell me off for not pointing my feet right or whatever."

Ashleigh & Pudsey will no doubt be too busy taking part in their own show in the form of new ITV2 series Top Dog Model.

Yes, such a show does exist.

"Being on the other side was a little bit weird, but I also felt like I could connect to the people because I've been in their shoes. I know exactly how they felt," Ashleigh said.

She added: "There was a few dogs that had a few tricks up their sleeve and it was really great fun working with them and working with the people on the show."
