Barry Chuckle, one half of the Chuckle Brothers TV show has died at 73.
The star of the BBC show, Chuckle Vision has died aged 73. The cause of Barry's death is thought to be short-term ill health. The Chuckle Vision stars were set to air a new show on Channel 5 called "Chuckle Time" but Barry's summer work was cancelled by his doctor's request. He passed away at home around his family including his wife, Ann.
The show aired on the BBC for 22 years, between 1987 and 2009. The show was 21 series long, with 292 episodes aired on the TV.
His brother, who was his partner on the show, Paul Chuckle said: "I've not just lost my brother, I've lost my theatrical partner of many, many years and my very best friend".
Others have paid tribute to Barry over social media, reliving the funny moments they had watching the show whilst it was aired on the TV.
