The Kennel Club is looking for the best doppelgangers for its online show this year, and these are some of the lookalike entrants.

Angela Rogers, from Chester, nominated herself and her golden retriever Harvey when a newfound likeness emerged after she had her hair dyed at the hairdressers.

Archer the chow chow and owner Andy, from Sheffield, also entered the contest, as did Kate Miriam, from Italy, who shares long locks with Highlander, her Afghan.
