Paloma Faith will voice a highly strung dog named Portia Poodle in a new animated Disney series based on the film 101 Dalmatians.

The show, 101 Dalmatian Street, will premiere early next year on the Disney Channel.

Inspired by Dodie Smith's 1956 novel and the 1961 movie, it will be based in Camden Town, London.

The series will begin with a Christmas episode broadcast in December to introduce viewers to the characters.

Featuring 43 cast members covering 106 speaking roles, the modern tale will focus on dalmatians Dylan and Dolly, their parents Doug and Delilah and 97 younger puppies whose names all also begin with D.

Faith said: "I'm voicing a poodle who is dark, intense and has tons of attitude. She is pretty much the coolest pup in Camden Town and loves taking centre stage when drama happens.

"As you can imagine, Portia is hugely entertaining to voice and just one of many wonderful and colourful characters that are part of this incredible new series."

101 Dalmatian Street will launch in the UK in spring 2019 and will roll out on Disney Channels globally throughout the year.
