Meet Theresa Donovan, Barry Cryer Wife
Comedian and writer Barry Cryer was married to his wife Theresa Margaret ‘Terry’ Donovan in 1962 in Bristol, England. They lived together in Hatch End, Middlesex home which they bought together in 1967 for £10,400. They stayed married until Barry’s death at the age of 86 on 25 January 2022. So, until his death, they lived happily married life which lasted for 60 years.
Barry reportedly met his wife Theresa while rehearsing for a Danny La Rue show at Winston’s Nightclub on the same day he first met Ronnie Corbett. He then “tossed a coin and decided to marry her”.
According to Reader’s Digest, Barry once shared, “It was at a rehearsal at Danny La Rue’s nightclub not far from the Windmill. She was a singer and dancer and I was smitten from when I first caught sight of her standing by a piano.”
Barry had discussed his relationship once with MailOnline. “The key is we’ve never understood each other; we don’t row but we argue all the time. I once said to her, ‘We disagree about everything,’ and she replied, ‘No, we don’t!’”
Barry had proclaimed that his marriage cured his eczema. Before Terry, he was hospitalized 12 times in eight years. He revealed, “When Terry first met me, I had dark glasses on and a coat buttoned up to the chin. She thought, Oh God! Who’s this one? He looks a bit weird. But I was only in a hospital with it once more after meeting her. Not a coincidence, I think.”
