Comedy legend Ronnie Corbett is returning to BBC One later this summer with a new six-part factual series about UK pets and their owners, Ronnie's Pedigree Pals.

The BBC says that the life-long dog owner will take viewers "into an extraordinary and entertaining world, where pet owners and breeders put their beloved animals centre stage and are proud to show us why their animals are the very best".

Among the animals set to feature are: dogs, cats, mini-pigs, miniature horses, camels and skunks.

Corbett said: "This series celebrates our nation's love of animals, which I share. Though I am finding the latest addition to my family a bit of handful; he's a very playful rescue dog called Baz, and this series will also be following his progress as he adapts to life in the Corbett household."
