In Paul O’Grady news, the For the Love of Dogs star has hailed his “new home” following a job announcement.
It was revealed last August that much-loved Paul’s BBC radio career was winding up after 14 years.
He said at the time, much to the dismay of his devoted listeners, that he felt that “now is the right time to go”.
In the days following, Paul admitted to fans he wasn’t “really happy” with his schedule.
He explained: “So, I did the honourable thing and I honoured my contract, gave my notice, and now I’m off.”
However, those fans who were gutted by Paul’s decision are jubilant today after it was revealed Paul has joined a rival radio station.
