Ashley Jensen has been cast in the live-action reboot of Disney’s ‘Lady and the Tramp’.

The 48-year-old actress became the first star to sign up to the flick, which will air on the studio’s soon-to-be launched digital streaming service next year, after bagging the role of no-nonsense Scottish Terrier Jackie.

According to Deadline, the role is the female version of Jock, who appeared in the 1955 animated film living next door to American Cocker Spaniel Lady.

The movie follows the unlikely love story between a pampered Cocker Spaniel named Lady and a streetwise mongrel named Tramp.

Lady finds herself out on the street after her owners have a baby but she is saved by Tramp who shows her how to live her life free and collarless.
