How did Paul O’Grady’die? Paul died on March 28, 2023, from sudden cardiac arythmia.

Sudden cardiac arrhythmia is when a person has a cardiac arrest and no significant cause could be found. A cardiac arrest is where the heart stops beating completely.

His husband Andre Portasio confirmed the devastating news on March 29, 2023, saying that Paul had died “unexpectedly but peacefully” in his sleep the previous evening.

Paul had a history of ill health. He suffered heart attacks in 2002, 2006 and 2014, as well as developing heart disease.

Who is expected to attend Paul O’Grady’s funeral?

Fans have been invited to line the streets in Aldington – Roman Road, Forge Hill or New Road Hill – as the funeral procession moves through the village.

But the funeral itself is private. Andre said: “While the funeral will be a private ceremony, as many of you know, Paul cared a lot about his local community.

“We have therefore requested that the funeral procession passes through Aldington before heading to the church, as a way of marking Paul’s affection for the area.”

No confirmation has been made about who will attend the private funeral, but it is likely to be family members, including husband Andre, and friends.

The TV star has one daughter, Sharon, who he had with his close friend Diane Jansen in 1974.

The star had friends from all over the showbiz world, including many that paid tribute to him when he died.
