Another wrote: “Love you Paul O’Grady – think that hair style is definitely a keeper! Take care of yourself and the pups.”

And a third quipped: “Not my hair I’m worried it about… it’s the middle age spread that’s gone nuts.”

The feel good video comes just a day after he shared a snap of his latest dog, Nancy.

New puppy, Nancy

Paul adopted the little puppy from Battersea Dogs Home after one of his other dogs, Boycie, died.

He captioned the adorable picture with: “Just thought I’d let you all know at Battersea how Nancy is doing.

“She’s twice her size, extremely confident, loves her grub and when she’s not terrorising Arthur (who’s mad on her) she likes to pose for glamour shots on her faux fur rug.

“I’m thinking of you all and wish I was there with the crew filming.

“Hope all the dogs and cats are doing ok which I’m sure they are with the all the love and care you show them. Keep well and see you soon that’s if Nancy hasn’t chewed my foot off.”
