What happened with Geri on POGDogs last night?

In scenes filmed before Max’s tragic death, Geri appeared on the much-loved show, adopting a dog from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Early on in the show, host Paul O’Grady shared Daisy’s heartbreaking story.

She was born with a condition that meant her liver wasn’t working properly, and was at the shelter for months as she underwent treatment and an operation.

At the end of the show, in a poignant clip, Paul revealed that she had been rehomed by none other than the Spice Girl.

“She did have medical problems that some people would feel anxious about taking on a dog with that. But I just think we’ve got enough love in our hearts to look after her.

“No matter what’s going on in your day, if you see a beautiful spirit in a furry coat it makes everything alright,” she said.
