Taking to their Twitter accounts, viewers of the show shared how sad they felt watching the show knowing that his funeral was today.

During tonight’s episode, a group of spaniel puppies were born, leaving Paul conflicted on whether he should have taken one home.

Visiting Daisy and her puppies, he said: “Ah, look at them all having a bit of scran. Oh… there you go, puppy heaven.

“Oh, I can’t bear it. I have to go because I’m gonna start stealing. Lily, forget it, don’t look at me. I wonder what they’d say if I turned up with a puppy…”

But unfortunately for Paul, all the puppies already had homes to go to, meaning his furniture was safe from the teeth of a playful puppy.

The funeral was held at St Rumwolds Church in the village of Bonnington in Kent on Thursday afternoon, conducted by Reverend Canon Roger Martin.

Arriving at the funeral, Paul’s husband Andre Portasio was crying as he rode in the carriage drawn by two black horses.

It was decorated with a wreath of their dog Buster, along with one of their other dogs, Conchita, sitting on his lap.

Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs airs Thursday from 9:30pm on ITV.
