Paul had to protect himself from COVID
During the lockdown, Paul was forced to shield due to his past heart health issues.
At first it seemed like he was leaving his radio show for good.
In March 2020, he said, “I was strongly advised to self-isolate. So that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’m in the Kent wild with a very lively five week old puppy so my hands are full and I have a lot to do.
“I just want to say to everyone else who is self-isolating, good luck and staying healthy and taking care of themselves.”
But he returned in July and instead of going to the studio every week, he created his own home studio.
Much hilarity ensued, including various technical issues and flyover noises.
In October he posed in front of a cannon and jokingly labeled it, “You know, I had problems with low-flying planes over the house when I tried to get my radio broadcast from the back bedroom? Well I finally found a solution … #dovercastle # bbcradio2. “
He also wrote a children’s book during the lockdown.
During the conversation with metrohe explained: “Everyone was getting fit on TV and I was like, ‘Good, you keep going, I don’t!’ I went through a terrible cake baking phase where I made three a day. “
He added, “I did, however, write a children’s book that will be published next year.”
