The Real Thing singer Chris Amoo’s Irish Wolfhound wins the spot in the Crufts Best in Show final
The Real Thing singer Chris Amoo’s dog was among the winners of day three of Crufts yesterday.
The dog named Paris won his best in group competition and now has a spot in the best in show finals tonight at 8:30pm.
Paris is a five-year-old Irish Wolfhound – the largest of all dog breeds – and was described by Mr Amoo as “very special” and “one in a million”.
Mr Amoo told BirminghamLive: “We are so proud of him. When the judge points at you, you can’t really believe it and it only starts to drop when you do your lap of honor.”
Proud owners have now arrived for the fourth and final day of the competition.

Mr Amoo last won Best in Show at Crufts 36 years ago and said he doesn’t go on holiday as he enjoys showing dogs.
Paris, from Warrington, Cheshire, snatched one of just seven spots in the final tonight after winning Best in Group.
Congratulating Mr Amoo and Paris, Crufts Show Manager Vanessa McAlpine described the place in the Best in Show final as an “incredible achievement”.
“The couple should be very proud of the hard work and wonderful bond they showed tonight,” she added.
Wire Fox Terrier Blanca, bred in Germany and registered name Ch Blanca Vd Schoenen Bergen, has also been announced for tonight’s finals.
Blanca won the terrier category yesterday with her handler Juraj Sokolic from Croatia.
As the final day of the dog show began, the puppies and their owners arrived at the NEC Birmingham.
Dogs in jackets, sweaters and booties arrived outside the venue, wrapped to protect them from the cold.
From an angry-looking, blow-dried Miniature Schnauzer to a stylish Standard Poodle, owners were pictured getting their dogs ready for the fourth-day extravaganza.
A fluffy Japanese Spitz was also pictured getting ready for the final day and looking at the camera, while a Japanese Akita Inu was caught yawning as owners prepared him.

Alasdair Newport appeared in a dog costume on day three of the competition before getting on one knee for Stacey Irwin-Burns.
Ms Irwin-Burns has competed in Crufts for almost a decade and has received multiple awards during that time – YKC Small Agility category in 2014, YKC Dog of the Year in 2015 and then competed for Great Britain in 2022
Her partner, Mr. Newport, found the puppy extravaganza to be the perfect place to pop the question – to which the Dog Agility Handler said yes.

Mr Newport told Wales Online: “Stacey competes here, her world is canine agility.
“It’s not mine, but I met her at her own canine agility show, so looking back it seemed that Crufts would be the best place that would mean so much to her.”
The couple live in Pyecombe, Sussex, and met at Mrs Irwin-Burns’ own dog show in 2018.
Crufts, currently run by The Kennel Club and first held in 1891, opened Thursday and closes today – and of course it will all be televised for fans to see.
The show is also broken down into four main categories: Hound, Working & Herding, Terrier & Hound, and Utility & Toy.
Crufts, moderated by Clare Balding, will also take a look at the serious side of dog breeding and ownership, with an emphasis on health and welfare.
When the competition began in 1891, it was founded by Charles Cruft, a dog biscuit salesman.
