ITV has confirmed which celebrities are taking part in its forthcoming pet rehoming series, Give A Pet A Home.
Tasked with provisioning new homes for the inhabitants of Newbrook Farm Animal Centre in Birmingham will be: comedian Julian Clary, singer and 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.
Amanda Holden will preside over the RSPCA-endorsed format.
“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!” – Amanda Holden
After a thorough training period with the RSPCA, the celebrity volunteers will help staff care for, rescue and rehabilitate the animals at the centre. 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.
“The RSPCA rescues and rehabilitates thousands of animals every year, so its fantastic to be joining forces with ITV and a team of Celebrity Volunteers to help give even more animals a chance to find their perfect, forever homes. I’m sure the Celebrities and ITV viewers will have their heartstrings pulled as we see the stories of some of the amazing animals in the RSPCA’s care.” – RSPCA
The series from Initial will air this spring and was commissioned by ITV’s Director of Entertainment and Comedy, Elaine Bedell, and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, Peter Davey.
