Paul O'Grady's Christmas trick
Paul O'Grady enjoys annoying his daughter Sharyn over the festive period by getting his grandchildren noisy gifts
Paul O'Grady loves annoying his daughter over the festive holiday with the gifts he buys her children.
The 59-year-old presenter dotes on Abel, eight, and six-year-old Halo - his 40-year-old daughter Sharyn's kids - and particularly enjoys buying them noisy items for Christmas, though he also gives them practical presents too.
He said: "I buy them loads of clothes - practical stuff. I've turned into my mum! And Abel got a guitar, which delighted me because that'll annoy my daughter no end.
"Last year, I got him a drum kit and it drove her out of the house on Valium!"
Paul is known for doting on his three pet dogs but insists he never buys them Christmas gifts or outfits for the holidays, although his Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross Eddie has a coat he wears in the winter.
The 'For The Love Of Dogs' host said: "I don't get them anything. If you give them a squeaky ball they dump it and start rooting around the paper.
"I don't hold with dressing them up at Christmas either, although Eddie has a tartan coat for practical reasons - he hates getting cold."
