Amanda Holden has been unveiled as the new Battersea Ambassador. The British actress, theatre star and TV presenter has become the Home’s fourth Ambassador, joining international supermodel David Gandy, television personality Paul O’Grady OBE and renowned children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge, is the proud owner of a Yorkie-Russell cross called Rudie and a cat Muffy. Amanda is no stranger to Battersea having twice hosted their annual Collars & Coats Gala Ball and will again join fellow Ambassador Paul O’Grady OBE to host the spectacular fundraiser this year on Thursday 7 November.
Amanda says, “I’ve always loved Battersea and have been a proud supporter for many years. My visits to the Home remind me what a truly inspirational place it is. To see how many abandoned and neglected dogs and cats find their way to Battersea every year and seeing the brilliant work that dedicated staff and volunteers do in caring for, and rehoming them is incredibly heart-warming. I sobbed my eyes out watching each episode of For the Love of Dogs on ITV and I’m really excited to be helping more animals find new homes by becoming an Ambassador for this wonderful charity.”
