COMEDY legend Peter Kay made a comeback this week for a sketch on The Big Night In, performing for the first time in over two years.

He delighted fans with an updated version of (Is This The Way To) Amarillo from his back garden in Bolton, along with famous faces and NHS nurses. The comedian keeps his private affairs out of the spotlight, but what do we know about his family life?

Who is Peter Kay's wife Susan Gargan?

Susan Gargan is the wife of comedian, Peter Kay.

Little is known about her and her life away from the spotlight, as the family choose to keep their personal life private.

She met Peter in a nightclub in Bolton in 1998.

At the time, Susan was working in their local Boots and Peter was working in the local cinema.

The pair married in 2001 after being in a relationship for three years.

In a bid to maintain a normal family life, Peter and Susan have opted to keep their marriage and children away from the limelight.

Do Peter Kay and Susan Gargan have children?

Peter and Susan have a son, Charlie Michael Kay.

The pair named him after their fathers, with Charlie being the name of Susan's late father.

Speaking to the Mirror shortly after his son's birth, Peter praised life as a family man.

He told the paper: "Fatherhood has changed me – it has to change you.

"It makes you much more aware of the minutiae of life, it's not about your needs any more, its about everyone else's."

It is reported that Peter has two other children – and in interviews he frequently refers to more than one child – but they have been kept out of the spotlight completely.

Why did Peter Kay cancel his 2018 tour?

After eight years away from the stage Peter Kay announced he was coming back with another live tour.

The comedian said he would “returning to his most successful hobby – stand-up”.

However, on December 13, 2017, he announced that the dates would be cancelled.

In a statement on Twitter, he wrote: “Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.

“This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments.

“My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.

“I’ve always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media. I hope that the media and public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I’m very sorry.”

In March 2020, Peter was forced to postpone his long-awaited comeback Dance For Life events due to the coronavirus crisis.

The comedian announced the news and promised the shows will go ahead at a later date.

He wrote: “Obviously this is disappointing news but well and truly justified given the circumstances.

“We’ll get through this, together and then we’ll all have a great big dance for life. “Stay safe and look after yourselves and the people around you.” It was a further blow to fans who were left devastated when Peter pulled out of his UK tour three years ago for “family reasons”.
