BBC Radio 2, Paul O'Grady

Paul O’Grady has been accused of ‘teasing’ his fans whilst on a break from BBC Radio 2.

The For The Love Of Dogs host, 66, is taking some time away from his Sunday slot after being replaced by comedian Rob Beckett.

And it appears that Paul is certainly making the most of it!

Paul updated his loyal fans on his whereabouts on Instagram earlier today (February 22).

The comedian shared a holiday video from a mystery location, complete with crystal clear water and blue skies.

In the background of the clip, Paul joked: “Isn’t Birkenhead looking lovely today? I might have a little dip in the Mersey.”

Why do holidays always go so quickly?

The Liverpudlian actor is clearly poking fun at his hometown of Birkenhead.

Captioning the video, Paul also said: “Why do holidays always go so quickly?”

Fans were quick to comment, with one posting: “Don’t tease us lol.”

Radio listeners fuming over Paul’s absence

It comes after Paul announced his brief departure from BBC Radio 2.

Shortly after hosting his final show this month, the star took to social media to address fans.

“It’s my last Radio 2 Sunday show for quite sometime, our listening figures have shot up so a great big thank you to everyone who listens,” he wrote.

“There’s a new regime now, I do 13 weeks on and then 13 off which is nothing to do with me as it’s a management decision.”

Paul went on to explain that he was planning a holiday abroad during the break.

He concluded: “So, all being well and providing I’m not in India or Borneo, travel restrictions permitting, I should be back some time in May. Take it easy.”

Another echoed the complaint, tweeting: “Not the same with out Paul will miss him until May switching off is what I’ll be doing bye for now.”
