PAUL O’GRADY: FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS – WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

NEW WEDNESDAY / ITV / 8PM / EP 1 of 3 / FACTUAL

Paul O’Grady falls in love with every animal he meets at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. But Staffordshire bull terrier Amy holds a special place in his heart, as she appeared in the first episode of ITV’s Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs back in 2012.

Animal lover Paul was horrified when Amy, originally named Sparkle, was brought in to Battersea after being found abandoned and emaciated.

Thankfully, after being nursed back to health, she found a loving family in Paula and Mark Oliver from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.

This week, cameras catch up with them in spin-off series Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs – What Happened Next, an uplifting three-parter that reveals how some of the show’s most memorable canines have fared since getting their much-deserved forever homes.

‘It’s brilliant to see Amy so happy and well-cared for,’ host Paul, 65, tells us. ‘It broke my heart when I first met her – there was barely anything left of her and she’d been so badly treated. I’m absolutely thrilled to see what a lovely life she has had!’
