Ant and Dec's secret challenge at dfs Crufts

Ant and DecThursday 10th March 2011 sees the start of the 120th year of the world’s greatest dog show, dfs Crufts, and what better way to celebrate than with the country’s favourite TV duo Ant and Dec.

The popular ITV entertainment show, Ant & Dec’s Push the Button will be in attendance at dfs Crufts 2011, with two competing families testing their dog skills in a head to head Agility competition live at the event. The award-winning presenters are scheduled to enter the Arena with the competing family members at 1:45pm for what is set to be a high paced, thrilling contest.

The judges will be keeping their scores and times secret however, so the spectators and competitors will not find out the results until the show broadcasts on Saturday 12th March.

Each family member will have spent the previous day with a dog agility coach and their own dog for the event, getting to grips with the different commands as well as the range of obstacles used in agility courses such as the tunnel and the seesaw. Unfortunately for the competitors the course they will be running on the day will be completely different to the course on which they will have been practicing, ensuring their skills and brain power really are put to the test.

Ant and Dec will no doubt light up the main arena with their cheeky combination of fun and mischief, bringing their unique style to the world’s greatest dog show at the NEC, Birmingham.

You can still buy tickets for dfs Crufts and see Ant and Dec in action in the Main Arena on Thursday
