Michael McIntyre has compiled the best moments from his comedy series Michael McIntyre’s Big Show amid lockdown restrictions that have prevented him from filming new episodes. On tonight’s show, Michael will go through the phone of The Voice UK judge Olly Murs as well as give a rude awakening to Peter Andre.
Who is Michael’s wife Kitty?
Kitty is the daughter of late film actor Simon Ward and sister of Young Sherlock Holmes actress Sophie Ward.
However, unlike her family, Kitty chose to live a life out of the spotlight and instead is reported to work as an aromatherapist.
Michael and wife Kitty Ward tied the knot in 2003.

Talking of how they first met while appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Michael revealed that he was perhaps a little too into Kitty at first.
Michael admitted: “I can’t leave messages so I would just call until somebody picked up.
“I would call so many times – 20-odd missed calls, record-breaking numbers.”
He went on to say: “It took two years of sort of stalking her.
“We had a really good start, she really liked me, but I didn’t know how to handle that.
“We might have kissed on our first date. That was it for me.
“I announced to everybody that I’m in love and I’m going to marry this girl.”
Michael and Kitty went on to have two sons together called Oscar and Lucas.

- How much is Michael McIntyre’s Big Show star worth?
Michael has previously spoken of how he has used Kitty and their children within his comedy shows.
During an interview with the Telegraph in 2012 Michel said: “I suppose, hopefully, they will find it quite nice.
“I have had jokes about Kitty getting pregnant, and then jokes about the pregnancy, followed by jokes about them being babies, and now jokes about their whole life.
“I was speaking to Peter Kay, and he said that he never mentions his kids’ names and I was like, ‘Oh shit, it’s too late for that.’
“But they sort of understand what I do, and at school, all the teenagers are nice to them.”
He added how he mimics Kitty on stage within his shows.
Michael explained: “I mean, I go on stage, and I do impressions of my wife putting her tights on, and it is amazing fortune that what I find funny other people find funny.
“It’s beyond anything I could ever have dreamt of.”
