Mairead "Peg" Dingle is the mother of Zak Dingle. She appeared in 2002.

Peg first appears on 24 January 2002 when Zak's cousins Elvis and Marilyn Dingle dropped her off on him, having had enough of her. Initially, Zak tries to pass off her to other relatives, including Charity and her husband Chris Tate. She briefly lives in a caravan outside Zak's house, but this burns down. Peg and Zak have a difficult relationship, and in March he accuses her of murdering his father Jed. She tells him that Jed had walked out on his family when Zak was young.

In April 2002, Peg sets her sights on Alan Turner and moves into the "Grange Bed and Breakfast", and drives away his customers. To drive Peg away, Alan pretends to be gay and in a relationship with Rodney Blackstock. Peg then moves back in with Zak, and in July Elvis arrives to collect Peg and take her away. Peg telephoned Zak to say she is in Africa.

    Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
    About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,

    I tried to peg out soldierly,—no use!
    One dies of war like any old disease.
