Wellingborough’s top dog Pudsey has launched his official memoir, ‘Pudsey: My Autobidography’.

Adam Strange, publishing director of Little, Brown, acquired world rights for the book in a deal with Pudsey and Ashleigh’s manager, Jonathan Shalit.

‘Pudsey: My Autobidography’ will be published under the Sphere imprint this autumn.

It is believed to be the most lucrative book contract ever agreed between a publishing house and an animal.

Pudsey’s book will tell of his troubled beginnings as a young puppy who always felt a little different to his siblings.

It will explore how he eventually found himself on stage winning the nation’s hearts by winning Britain’s Got Talent with his owner Ashleigh Butler, 17.

Telling it directly from the dog’s mouth, Pudsey will spill the beans on the twists and turns that have brought him to where he is now.

Mr Strange said: “I’m thrilled to be publishing such a unique story. We all know Pudsey’s an amazing dancer, but it’s been a delight to discover that he’s a great raconteur too. His route to the top has been unconventional to say the least, so I’m delighted to be working with him to reveal it to his army of fans.”

Mr Shalit, who also represents stars including Myleene Klass, Kelly Brook and X Factor judge and pop star Tulisa Contostavlos, said: “Pudsey has a terrific tale to tell and I’m sure his book will set tongues wagging around the world.”
