COMEDY legend Peter Kay has been a happily married man for the past sixteen years.
Here's everything you need to know about the stand-up superstar's wife Susan Gargan and the life they have made together.
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 her soon-to-be husband 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.
Peter Kay married Susan Gargan 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.
Peter and Susan welcomed their son, Charlie Michael Kay, in 2003.
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 elses."
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.
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”.
