She said: “Winning Pooch Perfect feels surreal and so incredible.

“To be able to inspire others in the industry and show that your dreams can become a reality feels amazing.

“I put my heart and soul into every challenge and I was so happy that I stepped out of my comfort zone and I still managed to showcase my years of grooming skills and knowledge within the industry.”

A total of 16 groomers competed in the programme across eight weeks.

“Plus she is now the proud owner of the Golden Stanley trophy!

“It’s been a pleasure being part of Pooch Perfect. I’ve loved every second and I can’t wait to see what Kelly and the rest of our amazing dog groomers do next.”
