“There’s another pig but she’s gone to bed early probably to make sure she gets a decent spec in their shed.

“They’re New Zealand Kunekune pigs and very smart but you can hear their snorting for miles.”

And Paul’s celebrity friends and fans alike were delighted to see his swines.

A third gushed: “Aw wow can I please come and live with you.”

And a fourth commended: “Omg Mr @paulogrady my sort of heaven.”

Elsewhere on the ‘Gram’, Paul shared an adorable update on his latest rescue pup.

Sharing a video of Jack Russell puppy Nancy, she is shown ‘attacking’ hose pipe water.

Paul captioned the funny video with: “As far as Nancy is concerned the hose pipe and water is something that seriously has to dealt with incase it attacks.”

He originally fostered Nancy for Battersea Dogs Home during lockdown.

However, after understandably bonding with her, he took her in to his menagerie.

He explained at the time: “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.”
