His latest dog, Nancy, already seems to be a bit of a character.

He explained how he had initially taken her in as a foster puppy during lockdown.

However, the little Jack Russell pup soon stole his heart, and she is now a permanent resident.

"I’d grown quite fond of this little pup so I took her home. Of course I fully intended to keep her from the start and I’ve called her Nancy. Don’t let the innocent look fool you- she’s well ‘are.'"

Paul has rescued many dogs from the organisation over the years. And he hosts his hugely popular Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs from the rescue centre.

He serves as an official ambassador for the charity, and there is even a statue in his honour at their London location.

The ITV show first aired in 2012, and continues to be immensely popular eight years on.

Paul has lost two dogs over the last year, Bullseye and Boycie.

He spoke of his devastation during a BBC Radio interview.

He said: "Maybe a mongoose might twist my arm, but no I can't handle it, it's what I always say - invite an animal into your life, inevitably you invite heartache.

"But then why contemplate the hangover when you're at the party, you know what I mean? So that's the poor saga about poor old Bullseye, he's gone but not forgotten."
