What an absolute delight to see Ashleigh and her very talented doggie Pudsey crowned the winners of Britain’s Got Talent 2012 on Saturday night.

I wouldn’t normally watch Britain’s Got Talent but I was intrigued to see who would actually win as the office had been buzzing all week talking about their favourite performers:

Natalia and Kyle where very popular in the office with their twist on ballroom dancing although their performance was unfortunately not at as good as previous, due to Natalia’s leg injury although it was a very commendable effort to still perform in such pain.

The other favourite in the office, as well as the doggie, seemed to be the Loveable Rouges, three very talented young men that surprisingly didn’t finish in the top three.

I must say that all the contestants did remarkably well, Only Boys Aloud came third and second place went to the amazing voices of Jonathon and Charlotte even though they didn’t win at only 17 and 16 they truly have a remarkable career ahead of them as I’m sure Simon Cowell and other producers will be scooping up as much of the talent from the show as they can.

As well as winning the glorious title of Britain’s Got Talent, a staggering £500,000 cash prize, Ashleigh and Pudsey now have a performance at The Royal Variety Performance where Her Majesty the Queen will be in attendance to plan and look forward to.

At only 17, Ashleigh has said that she will be spending some of the money on a new lead for Pudsey as they lost his on Saturday night and that she has always wanted to have her own business for film work for dogs or animals, it sounds like the prize money will be able to turn her dreams into reality especially with Pudsey now being insured for 1 million pounds and already estimated at earning over 5 million during his doggie years.

Big congratulations to top dog – BGT Winners Ashleigh and Pudsey 2012!

Annette's websites of the week

Britain’s Got TalentThe country seems to be gripped by Britain’s Got Talent after a series of live semi-finals this week. With the 10 finalists now selected everyone is looking forward to Saturday night’s live final show (ITV, 7.30pm) where the public will choose the 2012 BGT winner who will receive an enormous £500,000 and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety Show in front of the Queen.

I’ve really enjoyed this year’s show but I have to admit that I’ve not had chance to watch every semi-final show so I am a little behind on which acts got through to the final. Luckily the Britain’s Got Talent website is packed with all of the latest news from the semi-final shows including profiles of this year’s finalists, videos of their performances and exclusive interviews with contestants and judges.

So if you’re planning on watching the Britain’s Got Talent final this weekend checkout the website before hand to find out more about your favourite act. I’m backing the ‘paw-some’ duo Ashleigh and Pudsey because I can’t help but adore a dancing doggy.

London 2012 Olympic Games- This summer’s Olympic Games seem to be edging ever closer and this week a handful of events have taken place to ramp up the excitement including The School Games and the lighting of the Olympic Flame. Today the Olympic Orbit Tower, a steel sculpture designed by Anish Kappor was officially opened too.

The statement sculpture, which has caused a dived between people who love it and loath it, boasts a structure that is taller than New York’s Statue of Liberty and a observational suite that offers panoramic views of London. I’m yet to decide whether or not I like the design- what do you think?

In addition to the opening of Orbit Tower an extra 200,000 Olympic tickets were released this morning to Olympic applicants who were unsuccessful in securing tickets for the Games during earlier ticket distributions. With tickets to most events on offer, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, I’m sure that there will be lots of very happy Olympic customers by the end of today.

Age UK Care in CrisisThis week’s Queen’s Speech to open parliament disappointed many people including those who had hoped for a change in the social care system. Instead of a full social care bill been announced the speech revealed that only a draft bill on social care would be drawn up by the government this year.

Care in Crisis

Please support Age UK’s Care in Crisis campaign

For charities such as Age UK who have campaigned for change the draft bill is deeply unsatisfying. Despite this Age UK is still steaming ahead in their campaign for change in social care. To achieve a full bill next year they need to secure as much support as possible, which is why Age UK want as many people as possible to sign up to their Care in Crisis petition.

The online petition takes less than a couple of minutes to complete and includes a full and in depth insight into the whole Care in Crisis campaign, which I believe is worthwhile supporting because it could eventually help implement crucial change to the care system that we will all use at one point or another- sign the petition here.
