If you’re still mourning the loss of The Great British Bake Off on BBC One – fear not, as a brand-new dog show of a similar format is said to be in the pipeline.

Dog lover and presenter Chris Packham is to host the show, and says it will fill the hole left by the Bake Off. He told Yahoo: “It’s a competition show that will have a similar style to Bake Off, only with dogs.”

"We have people come in and bring their pet dogs. And they’re all competing. We set them challenges to achieve, so they had to train their dogs to do certain things as well as train themselves.

“It has a bit of science to it as well because some of the challenges are about how someone can train their dog. We’ll take the viewer through that process.”

Chris also added that filming for the show was ‘an emotional rollercoaster’.

Although the BBC hasn’t announced when the show will be aired, we have our paws crossed that it will be soon! Will you be tuning in?
