I saw "An audience with The Chuckle Brothers", all four of them were there, most of the show was probably lost on the young audience with its reenactments of games from To Me To You and hardly anyone asked any questions, but I am sure at one point they were all playing music - Barry played drums really well! I was last in the queue to get an autograph and they wanted to get away to update themselves with the cricket scores. True story.

I wonder if Paul will / can continue or will want to continue at all ? They were both planned to appear in panto in Hull this year, I guess its possible that Paul still could, but obviously the whole act was about them both.

Hull New Theatre has said they'll announce a "revised star line-up" ASAP.

The final series of ChuckleVision is up on the iPlayer:

Shame it's from when the show was well past its best, I'd have liked some from the early-mid 90s, but it's a fitting tribute anyway.

I remember this final series being very low key and burned off quickly at the time, they clearly weren't too keen on the show by this point. CBBC seemed to mostly be showing badly edited down to 15 minute versions of episodes from the late 90s/early 00s by the last few years they were showing it.

This was the best episode from the final series in my opinion, "Dishing Up Trouble". It was one of the few episodes from the final few years that felt like classic Chucklevision

Barry Chuckle funeral: As it happened


Not too sure how I feel about the BBC effectively live-tweeting a funeral. Some things can wait for a bit of editing and consolidation.


Long as it doesn't reach levels of "14:15 the hearse has entered the cemetry. 14:16 The coffin has been unloaded and is escorted to the burial plot followed by a visibly upset Mr Chuckle and friends. 14:18 Heads lowered and bowed, the coffin is lowered graciously into the ground", etc.

A tad overdramatic considering they only reported the arrival of the coffin and nothing that happened inside the stadium. They were with the other press in the area that had been specifically designated for them (and members of the public that wanted to pay respects as the coffin was arriving)
