Wizard of Oz's new Dorothy and Toto 'working really hard'

Danielle Hope is the latest actress to be plucked from obscurity, onto the West End stage by one of Andrew Lloyd Webber's TV talent shows.

She is now seven weeks into a run as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.

But the programme was not just about finding a leading lady - viewers were also asked to help choose a dog to play Toto.

The winner was a miniature schnauzer named Dangerous Dave - and this Thursday he will be at Danielle's side in a gala performance for Comic Relief.

Danielle speaks to BBC Breakfast.
