Paul O’Grady has had a rather cramped family life, but the ITV star has welcomed a new member to his family.
The owner of For Love of Dogs has adopted an adorable new daschund into his already huge animal family and he’s named his new pet Sausage.
The 66-year-old TV presenter boasts a huge indoor animal farm he shares with her husband Andre Portasio in Adlington.
The couple has been busy taking care of their five dogs and pigs, sheep, chickens, goats and owls.
And now, they also have very few Sausages to take care of.

This week, the former drag queen announced on Instagram that he has adopted Sausage – a Dachshund dog, which he adopted from Battersea.
The adorable dog, believed to be from Poland, captured Paul’s heart when she was cared for by the Battersea center in London after being found lost.
Paul said: “I brought this little furry monster home. It’s called Sausage, not very original but it doesn’t matter because it can’t understand a word of English except ‘biscuit.’
The ITV star said that Sausage “had sex” with his three dogs – Nancy, Arfur and Eddie – although not much of a relationship formed with his fourth, Conchita – who was “simply put off.” ignore her.”

Alongside some photos of the new addition, Paul wrote: “Nancy loves her and together they are a true thug couple.
“So far, Sausage has eaten her way through a couple of dog beds, an armchair, loads of socks and shoes, and stair carpets.
“But she’s the friendliest dog on the planet so what’s a shoe between friends.”
Paul has spent most of his time working with animals, including the acclaimed ITV documentary Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs.
But outside of his showbiz bubble, Paul leads a quiet life in Aldington with a bunch of pets and a devoted husband.
Paul married husband Andre in the summer of 2017 after the couple had been dating for 10 years before they got married.
The couple met in the mid-2000s after meeting at a London gay club called Showplace.
Although they have been married for almost 5 years, Paul and Andre never actually lived together until the coronavirus pandemic.
Paul previously confessed that the idea of living apart from her husband was inspired by Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton – celebrities who lived apart during their marriage.
“We’re doing something called Helena Bonham Carter and Tim, and it’s working,” he told Irish News.
“It’s still the same. We see each other all the time. We don’t live together, which for me makes for a perfect relationship because when you’ve had enough, you can say;” I’ll see you again, I’m off ‘.
“I got a little cranky one morning. I’m a cobra. I don’t wake up, I’m exhausted, and I slide down the stairs looking for trouble. But otherwise I’m fine. Andre is pristine , you know, everything’s in order – and I’m not.”
However, when the pandemic hit and strict quarantine rules were in place, Paul decided it was time to move in with Andre so the couple could be close and take care of their animals together.
No doubt Paul seems quite content to split his life between husband Andre, his huge animal collection, and his flashy showbiz life.
