Watch out Pudsey... Irish pup Robbie could be the next dog stealing the headlines.

The Zuchon, who lives in Tipperary, is following in the Britain's Got Talent champion's paw prints and starting his own stage career.

Proud owner Clóda Scanlon described Robbie as 'clever and funny' and said he has even participated in her preparation for her Leaving Certificate exam.

"Robbie is called after the singer Robbie Williams, no doubt he has the musical qualities," Clóda told Independent.ie.

"His favourites are when I play the lively piano ones just like in the video.

"I played that one for my Leaving Cert music practical in April, it's called Mechanics Rag.

"I'm trying to train him to howl/sing along to songs," she added.
