THE X Factor boss's production firm Syco is working on a programme featuring talented dogs which is expected to be screened over the festive period

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon is considered favourite to host the programme, to be called Take The Lead.



Ashleigh and Pudsey, who won this year's BGT, are likely to be on the judging panel.



A source confirmed they are working on the one-off programme for ITV and said it was likely to take the form more of a variety show than a talent contest.
