Before they left, Taylor decided to show Ashleigh a song he'd been listening to that reminded him of her.
After listening to the song in Taylor's car, they split ways.
In December 2012, Pudsey played the role of Duchess in David Walliams' TV adaptation of his children's book Mr Stink.
They began chatting and eventually met for their first date in Ashleigh's hometown of Matthews, NC.
In January 2013, it was announced that Simon Cowell would produce Pudsey: The Movie.
The film, which was released in the UK on 18 July 2014, follows Pudsey and three siblings Molly, George and Tommy as they move to the village of Chuffington-on-Sea with their mother Gail (Jessica Hynes) and set out to save the village from their landlord Mr Thorne (John Sessions) and his cat Faustus. From December 2012 to January 2013, Ashleigh and Pudsey performed at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking in Dick Whittington opposite Stephen Mulhern.
With a standing ovation from the audience and all three judges, they were put through to the next round.
Simon Cowell said "Pudsey is one of the best dancing dogs I've ever seen".
