Paul O’Grady leaves behind ‘huge’ net worth

Today (Saturday April 1), The Sun has reported on Paul’s estate. The tabloid claims the For the Love of Dogs host had a fortune of £8.6 million.

The sum is likely to be passed on in a will, it’s claimed. Paul’s husband Andre is also expected to be the main benefactor of his estate, it’s alleged.

The Sun suggests records filed by Paul show he earned more than £1.8m in the 12 months up until May 2022. It is claimed most of his money was in investments. However, unconfirmed reports also speculate he had almost £1.3m in the bank.

The Sun reports figures concerning Paul’s personal fortune are derived from records filed for his company Buster Productions. It was named after his beloved dog, who fans will remember died in 2009.

The huge fortune he’d accrued was a reflection of how popular and successful he was.

A TV insider alleged to the news outlet: “The huge fortune he’d accrued was a reflection of how popular and successful he was.” They then added: “The fact he was earning more money than ever at a time in life when many people would be winding down shows what a grafter he remained.”
