Ashleigh Butler was given Pudsey the dog for her 11th birthday

Britain's Got Talent winner Pudsey could soon become a Hollywood star after landing the lead role in a new superhero movie.

The dancing pooch's character in the blockbuster - which has the working title Superdog - will reportedly be a regular pet who becomes a superhero at night.

'It's an action film so he will be able to show off his nifty moves,' a source tells the Daily Star.

Pudsey and his owner Ashleigh Butler, 17, are currently on a promotional tour in the US after being flown over the pond in Simon Cowell's private jet.

Ashleigh recently spoke about how much she'd love to see her beloved cross-breed hound in a flick.

'I did watch The Artist and thought it was an amazing film and Uggie was absolutely brilliant,' she said.

'I think Pudsey would be perfect for that kind of thing because he loves film work and looking at cameras.'
