The final series of Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs is set to air on ITV soon following the presenter's death at the age of 67.

O'Grady hosted the programme since 2012 and he filmed the eleventh series last summer.

The programme sees him meet dogs who come into the care of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and he follows their progress.

O'Grady was known as an animal lover and had said previously before doing For the Love of Dogs that he had wanted to host such a show for some time.

In a summary on the Radio Times of the opening episode for this series it read: "In the late presenter's final series from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Paul falls head over heels with a Newfoundland that needs major life-changing surgery on its back legs.

"He also meets a labrador cross that is obsessed with water and keeps flooding its kennel and helps a terrified bichon frise that was found wandering around a forest."
