From hosting Blankety Blank as his alter ego Lily Savage to hosting his own talk show on Channel 4 Paul O'Grady is a television and comedy legend.
He later became renowned as an animal rights advocate presenting hugely popular shows like For the Love of Dogs and Animal Orphans.
Paul is already a best-selling author and his four volumes of adult autobiography are all Sunday Times bestsellers.
Now, his latest challenge is in the world of children’s literature. His debut book is inspired by his love of animals and is called Eddie Albert and the Amazing Animal Gang: The Amsterdam Adventure
Paul O Grady had a gorgeous, funny and heartwarming chat with Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast.
Not only does he have three pregnant Alpacas, he has five dogs, five pigs, three goats, six barn owls, nine sheep and so many ducks and chickens he has lost count! He even had a cow called 'Dot' once, but she kept coming into the house and wouldn't leave the kitchen!
Paul also talks about his rural Irish childhood on holidays in Glinsk, Galway and family who still live in the West. He learned to milk a cow at six-years- old!
