Simon Gregson and Cookie star in Britain's Favourite Dogs


Tonight on ITV, Simon Gregson and his little dog Cookie feature in Britain’s Favourite Dogs: Top 100.  As we know, Simon plays Steve McDonald in Coronation Street and Cookie plays, er, Rover.

It's a one-off special hosted by Ben Fogle and Sara Cox that reveals the nation’s favourite dog breeds, and features a host of famous faces sharing their ‘tails’ of living with man’s best friend.


“Cookie is not like any Jack Russell you’ll ever meet,” says Simon. “She’s very soft and gentle, and lets the kids do anything to her. She’s my shadow around the house, to the point that I’ve nearly broken my neck several times, tripping over her.

“Lucy (Simon's other dog) on the other hand, is true to form for a Yorkie. She’s loud, yappy and very protective. She also has smelly breath, and sleeps all day – unless a horse, person, bird, plane, car or fly comes within a hundred yards of the house, in which case she wants to kill!”

“Lucy and Cookie give unconditional love,” says Simon. “Sleeping on the settee with them under each arm is a very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon…and Monday to Saturday as well!”

To be honest to see Rover on the screen is my highlight of a Corrie episode. I loved the little coat she had on for the Christmas episodes.
