Paul O’Grady’s ‘last bit of filming’ for BBC show ‘he wasn’t fan of’

Craig Revel Horwood discusses Paul O’Grady death

Paul O’Grady died “unexpectedly but peacefully” in March at the age of 67 and before his death, he filmed several shows.

For the past few weeks, Paul could still be seen in ITV series For the Love of Dogs which documents his work at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

Now, it’s been revealed his final bit of filming was for a documentary about Eurovision ahead of the Song Contest next week.

Paul’s friend and producer Malcolm Prince shared the news of his appearance but fans were quick to note the presenter wasn’t a fan of Eurovision.

Malcolm posted on Twitter: “There will be a brief clip of Paul in the opening titles of the Eurovision programme at 8.00p.m. on Tues 9th May on BBC One.

“Paul wasn’t a fan of Eurovision as I am sure you all know, but it turned out to be the last bit of filming he did.”

When one fan replied: “I remember going in to radio two to talk to Maria Mc one Eurovision weekend. Paul was clucking about moaning about it all!” Malcolm agreed: “He was never a fan of it, bless him.”

Paul’s friend also confirmed his final appearance would be in a series for ITV, which completed filming in December.

One fan asked: “I thought the last bit of filming Paul did was in Thailand filming with animals for a series that was supposed to be broadcast either later this year or early next year for itv?”

Malcolm confirmed: “He completed that series in December and it will air soon on itv.”

Fans of Paul have been able to watch him in the latest series of For the Love of Dogs, which has been on air since 2012.

A recent episode saw Paul break down in tears as he said goodbye to Newfoundland Peggy.

The pooch had to have a three hour operation to help repair her back legs and Paul was on hand to help nurse her back to full health.

But when it was time to go, Paul struggled to say goodbye to Peggy who whined for him to stay.

He explained he would take Peggy home but had “no room at the inn”.

Paul told her: “Oh dear, I wish I was ready for you, Peggy, but I am afraid I can’t do it this time, there is just no room at the inn.

“”Peggy, it’s been a real privilege meeting you, it’s not every day you get to meet a special dog like you.

“You are very beautiful. It’s been lovely knowing you, take it easy, Peggy.”

Paul O’Grady’s For the Love of Dogs airs Thursdays on ITV at 8pm.
