When does Paul O’Grady’s Little Heroes start on ITV?
Paul O’Grady’s Little Heroes continues on Wednesday, August 29, 2018, on ITV at 8 pm.
Each episode of the heart-warming six-part series lasts for half an hour and will examine the day-to-day life at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Where is Great Ormond Street Hospital?
GOSH is a hospital in North West London – close to Russell Square tube station in the borough of Camden – but more than half its patients come from outside the city.
It is the largest centre in the UK for treating kids with cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, cancer services, intensive care, nephrology and renal transplants – among other things.
GOSH was founded in 1852, with just 10 beds, and was the first dedicated children’s hospital in the UK.
Last year, doctors at the famous hospital were involved in the treatment of terminally ill toddler Charlie Gard.

What’s it about?
Paul visits Great Ormond Street Hospital to spend time with the remarkable and brave children being treated there.
He will also offer a helping hand to the 4000 members of staff, even if it’s just to cause a smile on the faces of the children and their families.
The TV host experiences everything from ear reconstruction surgery to helping out the dinner ladies on the lunch round.
In the first episode, Paul meets eight-year-old Emmanuel, who was born without the use of his legs, and nine-year-old Lara who was diagnosed with a rare blood disease when she was just one.
