Among the stars who flocked to Primrose Hill in the sunshine was TV’s dancing dog Trip Hazard who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent 2016 with trainer Lucy.

Another top dog lapping up the fun was Humphrey who won the Ham&High’s sponsored category, dog who looks most like a celebrity. Humphrey walked off for the prize for his likeness to Sherlock Holmes.

He beat rival Ollie who was the spitting image of Donald Trump on the day.

Winner of the dog that looks most like it’s owner was Stevie for his likeness to nine-year-old Olivia Platt from St John’s Wood.

Pup Aid patron Meg Mathews and daughter Anais Gallagher came along with their new puppy Ziggy and pet Oscar.

Other celebrities there were singer Sinitta, with her pooch Scarlett O’Hara, TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger, with pup Coco, former Eastenders actress Michelle Collins and Celebrity Big Brother’s Zoe Khan.

Actor Peter Egan was also there mingling with stallholders and exhibitors.

Founded by vet Marc Abraham, Pup Aid’s annual dog show raises awareness and funds for the campaign to stop puppy farming, where dogs are bred in dark, dank conditions and often left with incurable and infectious diseases.

Dogs competed for other titles such as best ‘golden oldie’, best rescue dog and child’s best friend.
