Television personality Paul O'Grady has returned to his ITV evening show following a recent health scare.
The 58-year-old comedian, who has suffered from two heart attacks in the past, was admitted to hospital after suffering a suspected angina attack on November 18.
On his return to the Paul O'Grady Show this evening, the TV star made light of his hospital stay, being accompanied by a nurse on stage and using a stair lift to reach the stage, to huge applause from the studio audience.
Once behind his desk, he thanked well-wishers for their kind words and also those who had filled in for him during his absence from the show.
