As always as well as watching on TV you’ll be able to catch up online via ITVX.

In the first episode, Paul and the team are left baffled by a mystery illness which is making a young lurcher pup desperately ill. He also meets a gorgeous Staffie who is too scared to leave her kennel.

Paul uses every trick up his sleeve to try and coax her out into the big wide world. And he meets a tiny old Yorkie, with awful breath, who needs a bit of a makeover.

First airing in 2012, Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs follows the work of the staff of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

In each episode, Paul meets the animals in their care and those going out of the way to help them.

Since its first series the show has aired almost 100 episodes including a number of Christmas specials.

You can catch up with recent episodes and watch online via ITVX here.

Speaking about the show’s continued success previously, Paul said: “What’s amazing now is how popular the show is overseas. Australia, Canada, China, Germany, even Dubai! Three little boys from Dubai ran up to me in London the other day and their mum said they love the show. It amazes me, all these years down the line, the response it gets.

“I was only supposed to do six days filming here back in 2012 but I‘ve never really left since. People always tell me they laugh at me rolling around on the floor with these dogs, but that’s the only way to be with them. I’m not going to stand at the gate all day talking to the camera. I genuinely love these dogs. I really do.”

2020 also saw a new spin-off, Paul O’Grady for the Love of Dogs: What Happened Next.
