The line-up for the new ITV show, ‘Give A Pet A Home’ hosted by Amanda Holden has been revealed.
Give A Pet A Home, hosted by Amanda Holden has recruited a team of celebrity animal lovers who will leave the glitz and glamour behind as they devote their time, with the support of the RSPCA to finding a new home for the mistreated and abandoned creatures who arrive at Newbrook Farm Animal Centre in Birmingham.
The celebrity volunteers taking part are: comedian Julian Clary, singer and TV presenter Peter Andre, former footballer and sports commentator Chris Kamara, Loose Woman Coleen Nolan, TV personality and former member of the Pussycat Dolls Kimberly Wyatt and Olympic Gold Medallist Denise Lewis OBE.
After an initial intensive training period with the RSPCA, this heart-warming show will see the celebrity volunteers help the RSPCA staff care for, rescue and rehabilitate the animals at Newbrook Farm Animal Centre. From the day to day feeding and mucking out to the drama of emergency call outs and rescues, viewers will see the celebrities thrown in at the deep end.
At the heart of each show is the weekly rehoming appeal. Every week the show will feature six new animals available for adoption, each championed by a different celebrity volunteer. Viewers will be able to apply to adopt the featured pets via the itv.com website and successful applicants will be featured on the following week’s show.
Host Amanda Holden said: “I’m so delighted to be hosting this new series that will look into the amazing work the RSPCA do and hopefully we’ll be able to find some much needed new homes for the pets featured on the show. I am just going to have to stop myself from taking them all home with me!”
ITV’s ‘Give A Pet A Home’ is due to air next month (April 2015).
