John Barrowman was a guest star today on the new series Animal Rescue Live.

While on the BBC1 show, he talked about his dogs Lewis and Tiger - the latter of whom was a Dogs Trust rescue animal originally called Tegan.

He told interviewer Selina Scott that he and partner Scott Gill decided to give a pet a home rather than swap rings for their civil partnership so went to the Dogs Trust - where a dog called Tegan had just been taken.

Telling the co-host of the Doctor Who connection, he said: "So I figured it's fate and it had to be."

Barrowman is a celebrity patron for Dogs Trust.
