    There has been a hole in our lives (and nightly TV viewing) since The Crown season one left our screens last year.

    We have spent the past year longing for its return and finally, it is in touching distance, with The Crown season two airing this week on Netflix.

    Friday will see Claire Foy and Matt Smith return to our screens as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in the next series of The Crown, with new faces also coming onboard from Michael C Hall and Jodi Balfour as US President John F Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy to Matthew Goode as Antony-Armstrong Jones, the Earl of Snowdon – Princess Margaret’s love interest.

    With the new series launching on Friday (yes, really!), one site is offering a new-pet sitting experience to mark The Crown’s return – and it’s kind of amazing.

    Who better to binge-watch The Crown with than an actual corgi?

    Yes, that’s right. Three UK is launching a unique ‘Borrow My Corgi’ experience, giving fans of the show the chance to truly immerse themselves in the new season – by binge-watching it in the company of their very own regal four-legged companion for the day.

    Launching on Friday to coincide with the arrival of season two of The Crown on Netflix, ‘Borrow My Corgi’ will give fans of the show the chance to dog-sit one of the specially-selected pooches of the royal variety over the course of the weekend to enrich their viewing experience.

    Anyone looking to borrow a corgi for the weekend can apply by emailing, with the lucky winners receiving a four-legged friend chaperoned to their front-door by one of the ‘BMC Royal Butlers’.

    TV watching doesn’t get much better.

    Be right back. Off to borrow corgis.
