Can you give a dog a home?

Over 110,000 stray dogs were found on the streets of Britain last year after being abandoned by their owners, with one stray found every five minutes between April 2013 and March 2014. Today, we welcome some furry friends in need - currently residing in some of the country's dog centres but looking for a new family and a new place to call home alongside vet Zara Boland.

TM studio gets a little makeover...

We're back with a bang this autumn... and a refreshed set design! Production designer Clara Zita explains our new look.

Hello to all of the viewers that are interested in design. I have had a great time designing and refreshing the This Morning sets this summer. We have new looks in all of our areas, which I hope gives a very cohesive and modern feel to the set overall.

The central chat area has changed dramatically in colour. The new sofas made by Sofa Workshop are really fresh in tone and made in a lovely wool fabric.

In the foreground the wonderful side tables and patterned trinket box are by West Elm and the central coffee tables along with the tall, white floor lamps are from Habitat.

The glossy side board comes from Dwell and then moving up the set we have some fantastic cream and copper pendant lights by Innermost.

On the floor the black and white rug from Jonathan Adler brings everything together and really grounds the central space.

Can you give a dog a home?

Last week, six year-old Rottweiler-cross Bless made headlines after being dubbed Britain's saddest dog. Battersea Dogs and Cats Home think Bless' forlorn face is the reason why it took so long for someone to adopt her. It was only after her time in the spotlight that Bless finally found a home.
