Bill Bailey and Anton Du Beke in Valentine’s tribute to pet dogs

Strictly Come Dancing winner Bill Bailey is joined by famous faces including Anton Du Beke and Jorgie Porter for a special Valentine’s tribute to their pet dogs.

Singer Russell Watson and soap star Emma Barton are also part of the video for animal welfare charity Blue Cross, which sees the stars reciting a love poem about their pets to remind people of the benefits of adopting a dog.

The video invites pet owners across the country to write a love letter or poem for their animals and ends with each of the stars cuddling up to their dogs.

Du Beke added: “My two dachshunds really are the perfect example of why dogs are a man’s best friend.

“They greet me every day with their tails wagging, they bring my mood up when I’m feeling down, and my daily walks with them keep me feeling energised and active.

“Thank you Antonious and Branston, life wouldn’t be the same without you!”

The love letter will then be featured on the Blue Cross website.

Alyson Jones, head of rehoming at Blue Cross, said: “We are launching the Yours Furever campaign to raise awareness of the life-changing impact that pets can have on our lives.

“In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, we’re reminded now, more so than ever before, just how much our pets have positively impacted our lives and supported us through an incredibly tough year.

“Through the campaign, I hope that people across the UK are reminded of just how rewarding pet companionship can be. Love is a four-legged word after all!”
