Paul O'Grady says his life is better without TV

Share article:

Paul O'Grady thinks his life is much better now he's stopped watching TV.

The 62-year-old presenter used to be addicted to watching the telly, admitting he'd watch hours and hours of programmes every day, but Paul has recently quit watching so much TV and he says he's feeling healthier for making the change.

He shared with the Daily Star newspaper: "I used to have the telly on all the time and sit and watch all the soaps and shows - but not now.

"Those days are over. My health is better than ever for it too. My doctor even said that I am in much more perfect health - it's given me a new lease of life.

"Anyway there is much more stuff to do in life than watch telly."

Paul suffered a major health scare in 2017, when he was rushed to hospital and told by doctors that he was at risk of kidney failure.

The veteran TV star subsequently cited handling wounded puppies while working on "Paul O'Grady: For The Love of Dogs" in India as the reason for his troubles.

Of his health situation, Paul previously explained: "I used to think I was invincible but now I'm running out of lives. I'm not scared of death at all ... It's the way you die that worries me - that's the fear.

"I think I could lie there on my deathbed and say, "Well, I've had a good time and filled a book. I've done everything I wanted to do.""
