Patrick Kielty has opened up about his marriage to his long-time friend and wife of two years Cat Deeley.
The comedian and presenter, whose fans were somewhat surprised when he tied the knot with Cat six months after they went public with their romance, has said that the speedy way the wedding came about was unexpected for him too.
He joked that now they have a child he ‘pretends’ to have work – on shows such as on the upcoming second series of quiz show Debatable – so that he can have the luxury of taking long-haul flights, over to the UK from where the pair live in the US, on his own.
