Jumping rabbits at Great Yorkshire Showground

Swedish jumping rabbits are set to steal the show at today's Small Animal Show at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.

Jumping bunnies

Speed and agility aren't words usually associated with the humble bunny, but these professional jumpers from Sweden are set to be the stars in the Grand National of the rabbit world. They first appeared at the show 2011, and four of the fluffy creatures will be back again today after two years away, due to popular demand.

The jumpers are just one of the attractions at the show, which takes place today and tomorrow and is organised by a small committee of dedicated volunteers. It is the largest small animal show in the country - with around 3,000 chinchillas, gerbils, hamsters, mice, rabbits and rats attending over two days.

Two winners from our region at NTA's

It was the award's show that we have been building up to for weeks, and we weren't the only ones as over seven million people tuned into The National Television Awards last night.

Unfortunately Emmerdale missed out on the three categories they where nominated in, but the region was still well represented as Sheridan Smith and Keith Lemon picked up awards despite the London traffic. Daniel Harris now reports:

Sheridan Smith, who's from Epworth landed the best drama performance prize, but failed to make it to the ceremony on time after her taxi got stuck in traffic, causing her to turn up late with an apology.

She saw off competition from the likes of Dame Maggie Smith, Sarah Lancashire and Benedict Cumberbatch to claim the award.

Keith Lemon's "Celebrity Juice" won the best multichannel programme. The X Factor - with Leeds lass Mel B as a judge - won best talent show, beating off competition from Strictly Come Dancing.

Sheridan, from Epworth in North Lincolshire won for her performance as Cilla Black in the ITV drama Cilla, but her fellow cast members had to collect her award for her as she was stuck en route to the venue in a taxi with her Mum.

She finally made it on stage to great cheers from the celebrity audience.
