Paul O'Grady has reportedly landed his own 'dirty' chat show, after recording a pilot for the programme two years ago.
The comedian, 65, is said to have had his new show greenlit after making a number of risqué jokes in a pilot he recorded in 2019, including one dig that took aim at Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
According to reports from The Mirror, Paul will be recording seven, 45-minute episodes that will see him interview guests and also give audience members a chance to ask their burning questions to the stars.

A source speaking to the publication claimed the pilot Paul recorded 'was very funny' and added: 'We've ordered more episodes and they will stay close to the pilot. They'll go out later this year, probably in the autumn.'
Paul was reported to have said in the pilot: 'You know what they are like at ITV, they are a bit leg-crossed aren't they? Phil and Holly – the pair who p*** themselves if somebody says "bum".
'It is like The Graham Norton Show; you are plonked on the end of the couch and, of course, who are you going to talk to? You have got Meryl Streep at that end, me at the other. He's not going to talk to me, so I am sat there, bored t**less.'
He is also reported to have called his chat show the 'dirtiest' possible to have on TV, so he claimed it was 'too rude' to make it to air.
