The pair have been tipped to win the talent show

A Shrewsbury music teacher and her ballet-dancing rescue dog have been tipped as the joint favourites to win Britain's Got Talent 2010.

Tina Humphrey and Chandi are through to the second round of the talent show after making a big impression.

Judge Piers Morgan said: "It's the most talented dog I've ever seen."

Tina said she couldn't believe the reaction: "We've never experienced anything like it... I don't know how Chandi stood it."

Soul mate

Tina and Chandi, the pirouetting border collie, impressed the judges, in what was the first show in the current series of Britain's Got Talent.

Tina Humphrey (37), a piano and violin teacher from Bayston Hill, said the noise and atmosphere on the show were amazing. She said: "I don't know how Chandi actually stood it, she seemed completely oblivious."

Tina, who describes Chandi as her soul mate, rescued her from a dog pound, 11 and a half years ago, when she was a puppy.

Since then the pair, who are together 24 hours a day, have appeared on a number of TV and radio programmes including Crufts, where they've won several awards for heelwork to music.
