Channel 4’s new show Celebrity Snoop Dogs debuted on Friday night
Channel 4’s new show Celebrity Snoop Dogs debuted on Friday night, and it’s safe to say viewers had never seen anything like it before! The programme offers a new twist on shows like Through The Keyhole, giving us the chance to look around a celebrity’s home – but from a dog’s eye view.
The production company asked celebrities to attach cameras to their dogs, who then wandered around their homes and broadcast what they saw, as Grand Designs host Kevin McCloud narrated the action from a safe distance. At the end of the show, the celebrities in question were revealed.

Crufts and Through The Keyhole had a baby and it’s this series,” and another adding: “#CelebritySnoopDogs is utterly brilliant! Far more highbrow than expected. It’s Grand Designs with dogs (literally) #KevinMcCloud narrating is superb.”
Another Twitter user admired Shirley’s stunning home, writing: “Shirley has a belting gaff,” while a fourth fan had a suggestion for a new twist on the format, tweeting; “I hope they follow this up with a Celebrity Snoop Cats version. It would be great to see a GoPro view of a cat climbing up a curtain…”
