A new TV show hopes to get around social distancing rules by using dogs instead of human camera crews.

The 'Snoop Dogs' programme by British broadcaster Channel 4 will see cameras going inside the locked-down houses of well-known faces.

But the filming is done by the celebrity homeowners’ dogs.

Channel 4 has commissioned Northern Ireland-based Stellify Media to make the show, which it says has a barking mad new format.

Each episode peeks inside the homes of two celebrities in lockdown, with Go-Pro cameras attached to their pooches.

The four-legged friends will turn puparazzi on their owners and show the upstairs, downstairs, under the beds, behind the couches - and anywhere else the canines fancy sniffing out.

The identities of the celebrities are kept under wraps until the end of each episode, as viewers play along to guess who the pawsible doggy-loving homeowner could be.

Sean Doyle is deputy head of features at Channel 4.

He said: "I didn’t want lockdown to stifle creative conversations and Snoop Dogs is a perfect example of a reactive and outside of the box commission.

"We’ve come up a wonderfully ridiculous spin on filming in lockdown that only Channel 4 could get away with.

"We hope families enjoy playing along whilst getting a healthy dose of doggy mischief and celebrities’ lush properties and home interiors."

'Snoop Dogs' is Stellify Media’s first commission for Channel 4, and will be produced in Belfast with funding from Northern Ireland Screen.
