Paul is an avid animal lover and has multiple rescue dogs.

He’s also delighted his fan base with snippets into his idyllic farm life during lockdown.

In addition to sharing updates on his various dogs, he has also shown off his other animals.

He’s also got chickens, pigs and sheep.

He even recently shared that he’s considering adding alpacas to his menagerie.

In a recent interview, Paul said he can’t stand people that use their pets as accessories.

Seeing dogs in handbags particularly infuriates the star.

He told The Sun: “They need exercise. I once confronted a girl in a noisy, smoky nightclub whose chihuahua’s head was sticking out of her bag.

“Dogs shouldn’t be out at that hour, it’s disgusting.”

He continues to host Paul O’Grady: For The Love of Dogs on ITV.

The show has been a hit since it first launched in 2012.

He had to temporarily quit filming this year due to lockdown, but fortunately he and the crew are back to work now.
