I actually cried. I really loved his radio two show and listened every Sunday 5/7 and missed it terrible when it was finished. Just heard he was going to boom radio and was delighted. A lovely man and really gone too soon. He was always an advocate for the dogs and the less fortunate. A true gent who will be missed definitely by me.

When I heard the news of Paul O'Grady this morning tears came to my eyes and it seemed unbelievable to hear of his death. He brought much joy to many peoples lives he was genuine caring and seemed a lovely person. His love of all
the dogs on the Battersea Dogs Home made it fantastic to watch.
Truly a person who had a shining light around him such a character and gone from this world too soon.
R.I.P. Paul bon voyage. xx

I was really impressed by him in his programme working with the Salvation Army. It was so sad (and stupid) at the end when they said that he would not be accepted to join because of his sexuality. Awful that they couldn't see past that to the good person he was. sad

If that’s true, it’s outrageous and ignorant. I should think he was a better Christian than they were.

There are some lovely stories coming out about Paul. Someone on TV today said that Paul was offered the job as a producer on a show. He apparently said 'I'd love it but I'd rather you advertised it so that everyone gets a fair crack at it.'

A sad loss.
