REPORTS: FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS COULD CONTINUE WITH NEW HOST ON ITV FOLLOWING PAUL O'GRADY DEATH
Award winning series For The Love Of Dogs, which has been fronted by Paul O'Grady until his passing earlier this year, could continue in the future with a new host, The Sun newspaper reports.
The Sun reports that Amanda Holden is the favourite to take over the series in the future, however it's understood no decision will be made in the short term. Holden, who is also a judge on ITV's Britain's Got Talent, previously fronted Give A Dog A Home on ITV.
A source told The Sun: "Execs just feel like it’s too soon to make firm plans about the series, as it’s barely been two months since he died. But the feeling at the home is that it’s what Paul would have wanted. After all, he cared deeply about the animals in Battersea."
Before that, Paul O'Grady will return to screens later this year with the second half of the current series, which was filmed before his death and shown with his family's permission.
The latest series saw Paul falls head over heels with a gorgeous Newfoundland who needs major life changing surgery on her back legs. He meets a lab cross who's totally obsessed with water and keeps flooding her kennel, and helps a terrified bichon frise, who was found wandering around a forest, become less scared of the world.
Previous episodes of Paul O'Grady For The Love Of Dogs are available to stream now on ITVX.
