TV host and comedian Paul O'Grady has been paid £2 million for the second installment of his autobiography.The fee is twice the advance he was paid for the first novella, At My Mother's Knee and Other Low Points. The nook - O'Grady's first - went straight to the top of last year's non-fiction hardback chart. The Liverpudlian chat show host allegedly demanded the £1 million increase from publishers Transworld after learning that comedienne Dawn French got far more than him for her memoir Dear Fatty, also published by the same company.
