The final 11 dogs competing for the role of Toto on Over The Rainbow have been revealed.

Judges Sarah Fisher, Gerry Cott and I'd Do Anything winner Jodie Prenger unveiled their chosen canines on last night's results show.

Andrew Lloyd Webber will meet the finalists and select the final five. Viewers will then see the animals in a series of challenges each week, which Webber and the panel will use to decide who should win the prize of performing in a one-off gala performance of The Wizard Of Oz in the West End.

Competing for the prize will be 1-year-old Pug/Shi tzu Eddie, 10-year-old Yorkie/ Dachshund cross Bert The Flirt, Mini Schnauzer Dave and Labrador Bumble, who has entered Crufts for the last two years.

The finalists also include Samoyed Qannik, who was recently on the cover of Dogs Today magazine, Beagles Teasel and Spider, 4-year-old Border Collie/Poodle Dennis and 5-year-old Great Dane Strider.

Rounding up the list are 4-year-old Troy, who took his empty plate to Lord Webber and bowed for him at the auditions, and Bearded Collie cross Springer Spaniel Missy.

Over The Rainbow continues next Saturday at 7.15pm on BBC One.
