Jorgie will join other famous faces walking alongside thousands of dogs and their owners to raise vital funds for Guide Dogs, enabling them to support more people who are visually impaired to lead confident, independent and active lives.

Speaking about the event, Jorgie said: "I can't wait to see my little Lady become a hero for the day alongside her doggy friends! A guide dog can make an incredible difference to someone and I'm excited to be a part of Dogs Unite which will help more people to lead independent lives."

While guide dogs and their supporting four-legged friends prepare to be the new heroes in town, a poll for Dogs Unite found that Lassie still tops the charts as the ultimate hero dog (40 per cent), followed by World Trade Center hero, Trakr (16 per cent), with Buddy, the very first guide dog, in third place (14 per cent).

When asked to choose their ultimate doggy companion, respondents said that Wallace's pal, Gromit, was the number 1 chum followed by Dorothy's faithful Toto in second place.

The top 10 ultimate doggy companions are:

1. Gromit

4. Scooby Doo
5. Beethoven
