Clare Balding will be joined at Birmingham’s NEC by TV presenter and former Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas and Channel 4’s Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick.
All the Arena action from the show will also be shown live on the Crufts YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/crufts.
“The show holds a special place in dog lovers’ hearts because it celebrates everything that we love most about dogs, and Channel 4 and More4 will reflect on how the show has grown over the years and the many different aspects of the event,” said KC secretary Caroline Kisko.
“The TV coverage not only brings to people’s homes exciting sports such as agility and flyball but it also lets them see the diverse range of wonderful breeds. It also covers topics about choosing, caring for and enjoying life with dogs, as well as different issues affecting dog owners in the UK.”
Channel 4 and More4’s coverage of Crufts will be produced by Sunset + Vine.
