May Mulgrew, the wife of well-known entertainer Jimmy Cricket, celebrated a big personal achievement recently when she was awarded a masters degree in theology at Liverpool Hope University.
The award came two years after May – a professional singer who also supports Jimmy in his work – had gained a bachelor’s degree at the same university.
As she had enjoyed studying at the Merseyside university so much, she then decided to do a part-time Masters there as well.
The graduation ceremony took place at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool and Jimmy said afterwards: “Obviously this was a great occasion for May and I am really proud of her fine achievement.”

Jimmy added: “Bill helped to transport May and I around the city to the various places associated with the graduation, which was a great help to us both.”
Right, Jimmy and May – still dressed in her special university cap and gown went for a walk in the colourful Sefton Park following the ceremony and the weather was fittingly glorious.
