The British Animal Honours 2013 is the first televised award ceremony celebrating the country’s most extraordinary animals and the people who dedicate their lives to them. Hosted by Paul O’Grady (The Paul O’Grady Show), animals are nominated for honours by members of the public and the winners are chosen by a panel of experts.

Twelve honours will be awarded across the two-hour prime time entertainment slot , including Brave Animal, Loyal Animal, Inspirational Animal, Animal Charity of the year and many more.

One of the show’s contributors is a local mum from Tunbridge Wells who, as well as having epilepsy, has recently become blind. Despite this, with the help of her guide dog, she can continue to live a fulfilled life. The British Animal Honours crew visited Tunbridge Wells and shopping area the The Pantiles to see how her dog helps her in every day life.

Tunbridge Wells is a large historic town situated in West Kent which has a busy town centre and a period shopping area, The Pantiles, which offers a fascinating variety of small specialist shops, antique shops, open-air cafés, restaurants and bars. Previous productions that have been filmed in Tunbridge Wells include Sarah Beeny’s Selling Houses (2013), Britain’s Best Bakery (2012), and How to Look Good Naked (2009).

Don’t miss The British Animal Honours 2013 which will be shown on ITV on Thursday 18th April 2013 at 20:00.
