Chuckle brothers are back — having a laugh at YOUR expense
KIDS’ entertainers the Chuckle Brothers are making a TV comeback — almost a decade since their long-running series ChuckleVision ended.
Paul, 70, and Barry, 73, will appear in a new clip show called Chuckle Time, which will run for 12 episodes on Channel 5.
The programme will see the brothers perform comedy sketches and introduce humorous online videos from members of the public.
Channel 5 said the hour-long show will be ‘good-natured family entertainment’.
It said: ‘The Chuckle Brothers have spent their lives falling over and making us laugh, and now they are watching us make fools of ourselves as the public/audience upload fails, flops and funnies onto the internet.’
The Chuckle Brothers, whose real surname is Elliott, won the talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1967. The Rotherham double-act’s BBC series ChuckleVision ran for 21 series from 1987 to 2009.
A start date for Chuckle Time has yet to be confirmed.
