Hi, Kelly! Congratulations on winning . How did it feel to walk away with the crown?

It’s all a bit surreal. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and so intense, but I’ve learnt that I actually work really well under pressure. I never knew that before, so that was quite a nice thing to find out about myself.

Did you think winning was a possibility when you signed up?

My friends and family all told me I was going to win, but I just thought they were being biased. I didn’t believe it at all. I think I speak for all groomers when I say we never feel like we’ve done a perfect job. No matter how long you spend on a groom, there’s always something more you could have done to make it better.

Were there any mishaps on that we didn’t see?

Honestly, no! It was all very well managed behind the scenes. All the dogs were vetted beforehand by an animal welfare officer.

Did you find yourself doing things for the first time on the show?

The little ice cream that I did for the Asian freestyle was something I’d never done before. Oh, and my gorilla cut. We had to turn our dogs into a different animal and I decided to go for something that no one has ever done before.

That was a real challenge because I had nothing to copy and had to make sure I didn’t go gung ho into normal grooming mode.

What was the hardest challenge?

They were all difficult in their own way to be honest. My hand strip dog was hard because it had been clipped previously. You’ve just got to try and keep it together in the moment!
