Paul O’Grady was previously given a ‘new lease of life’ after giving up television.

The For The Love Of Dogs host, 66, made the decision some years ago after spending hours in front of the box.

However, Paul decided to change his ways for the sake of his health.

Paul O’Grady on health worries

Back in 2018, Paul explained that he would often sit for hours watching soaps and documentaries.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the host shared: “I used to have the telly on all the time and sit and watch all the soaps and shows, but not now.

“Those days are over. My health is better than ever for it too. My doctor even said that I am in much more perfect health, it’s given me a new lease of life.”

Those days are over!

Despite appearing on the screen himself, Paul clearly doesn’t have much interest on the latest shows.

He added: “Anyway there is much more stuff to do in life than watch telly.”

Earlier this week, Paul left fans in tears with another emotional episode of For The Love Of Dogs.

The star returned to Battersea Dogs Home, where he met three furry friends looking to find homes.

During the episode, Paul fell in love with a bulldog with a bad case of cherry eye.

Leah had to undergo surgery to help with her irritating eye condition.

A second added: “I just love how Paul is with the dogs, I’m exactly the same #POGDOGS.”
