“It was so tough as each episode we sent home two groomers, which was emotional every time. They had all invested a lot by coming on the show, this is their livelihood and they were putting themselves on a platform and you knew how much it meant to each of them.
“We had contestants who had been grooming for three years, and then some who had been grooming 30 years, but we had to judge on what we had just seen in those few hours.”
In terms of choosing the winner, Colin knew exactly what he was looking for and added: “I was looking for a person who could take on any task we set them, they didn’t necessarily have to be flawless, but they had to fit the brief.
“The dog should have balance and symmetry, you want to heighten their features and also complement the breed. Ultimately they need to have compassion and be well versed in dog handling and welfare.”
