Paul moved to London from Birkenhead and whilst working as a social worker he began his comedy career on the pub and club circuit. He appeared as Lily Savage on stage and screen hosting his own shows on BBC and ITV. He appeared on stage in various musicals which led to The Paul O’Grady Show. With a move to Channel 4 in 2006, this became The New Paul O’Grady Show, running for 11 series which found success with Paul’s irrepressible humour and the occasional comment from his doggie co-presenters Buster and Olga. Paul moved to the 9pm slot for two series on ITV with Paul O’Grady Live in 2010/11. The Paul O’Grady Show returned to ITV 2013-2015 and he has since continued with various hosting duties on programmes Animal Orphans, Blind Date, Paul O’Grady’s Little Heroes which have all been on-screen for multiple series.  Between filming, he is a regular presenter on his Radio 2 show Paul O’Grady, running on Sundays 5-7pm since 2009.

Award winning ITV show Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs is in its 9th series and follows Paul in Battersea Dogs and Cats Home’s care as he meets some of the dogs looking for help, love and new homes.

Paul has four dogs of his own but his love of animals extends further as he also lives with his menagerie of pigs, sheep, chickens, goats, and owls! Paul is a supporter of many charities, Ambassador for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and Save the Children, a Patron of, among others, Orangutan Appeal UK and Wildlife SOS.

As a nation of dog lovers we all want to give our dogs a happy healthy life! I want to provide our dogs with complete and balanced dog food that will support their healthy, whilst being tasty and enjoyable.

That’s why I have worked with Burgess Pet Care’s nutrition team to create a range of foods that’s great for our dogs and is affordable for all.

I chose Burgess because they have British values. They are a British family owned pet food manufacturer. They work with the welfare community to help rescue dogs and most importantly, they genuinely care about the nutrition of dogs - that’s why I believe this is the best food you can feed your dogs!

Paul’s Mission? To bring the best value dog food, with no nasties at an affordable price.


Our strong family values and traditions are core to the Burgess Story. For generations we have produced the finest quality food for people, pets and animals. Our 200 year heritage in agriculture has helped forge strong relationships with the farming community and the ingredients for our recipes are sourced locally where possible.

As pet owners ourselves, ensuring the health, happiness and welfare of dogs is our primary goal and our expert knowledge of animal nutrition helps us achieve this.
