The Toto Panel

Toto Panellists Jodie Prenger, Gerry Cott and Sarah Fisher

Jodie Prenger


Jodie Prenger is the perfect person to head up the search for Toto. Not only is she an expert in all things West End but she also owns four dogs of her own.

Jodie started her acting and singing career in the ensemble of Les Miserables but first came to our television screens as the winner of reality weight loss show 'The Biggest Loser'. It wasn't until she took part in I'd Do Anything, that she really had the chance to showcase her musical talents. The nation loved her! Jodie saw off competition from the other girls and won the part of Nancy in the West End musical, Oliver. She has been playing Nancy for nearly a year and enjoyed working alongside her co-star of the show Bullseye, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Jodie will be on the search for a happy, healthy dog that can handle the pressures of the showbiz world.

Gerry Cott


Not only is Gerry Cott a dog expert, but he is also a virtuoso guitarist and co-founder of the Boomtown Rats.

Gerry traded his life as a popstar to start a highly successful career as an animal behaviourist and animal-filming consultant to the film, television and advertising industries. Since then Gerry has professionally trained thousands of dogs in the UK and across Europe to become TV and movie stars in their own right. The dogs that Gerry has trained have appeared in films such as Leap Year, 28 Days Later, The Adventurers of Greyfriars Bobby, The Borrowers, Alfie, The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy and The Queen.

As one of the Over The Rainbow 'Search for Toto' panellists, he will be looking for a dog with personality and that all important star quality.

Sarah Fisher


What Sarah Fisher doesn't know about dogs, quite frankly, isn't worth knowing. So much so that she actually earned the title of the 'UK's highest qualified Equine and Companion Animal Instructor' in her field.

In her role as trainer, charity founder and animal expert Sarah has written four books including 100 Ways to Train the Perfect Dog and 100 Ways to Solve your Dog's Problems.

She is also no stranger to television appearing on This Morning where she is a regular animal expert, Blue Peter, Animal Rescue Live, Only Fools on Horses, Celebrity Dog School and Talking to Animals. And if that isn't enough, she is also married to actor Anthony Head.
