Video: Comedian Miranda Hart wants Oxford dog owners to help her this morning
ACTRESS and comedian Miranda Hart is encouraging dog owners in to help her with her Red Nose Day challenge in Oxford today.
The TV star’s challenge, which was revealed live on Chris Evans’ Radio 2 show this morning, is to host a first class dog show - and she needs the city’s residents to get involved.
She is asking dog owners aged 18 or over who want to take part to head to the Headington Road entrance of South Park at 11.30am.
Ms Hart tweeted this morning from her account @mermhart: “Roll up roll up anyone in Oxford with a dog, come to South Park at 11.30 to audition for my dog show.”
The results of the dog show will be broadcast live on BBC’s The One Show at 7pm.
The challenge is the fourth in a series of five Ms Hart is taking on this week to raise cash for Comic Relief. Visit rednoseday.com
