Chuckle Brothers making TV comeback 30 years after ChuckleVision first aired
In news that has pretty much made our year (so far), the legendary Chuckle Brothers are returning to screens with a brand new TV show.
Shortly after delighting the nation with their cameo on Benidorm, Barry and Paul are now gearing up to front their own Saturday evening teatime series, Chuckle Time.
The Channel 5 show will see the Chuckle Brothers introduce funny internet clips and perform classic sketches. So, it’s You’ve Been Framed meets ChuckleVision basically.
“The Chuckle Brothers have spent their lives falling over and making us laugh, and now they are watching us makes fools of ourselves as the public and audience upload fails, flops and funnies onto the internet,” the channel confirmed to Digital Spy.
The series will consist of 12 hour-long episodes and marks the Chuckles’ first show since their iconic kids’ series ChuckleVision ended in 2009 after an impressive 21 series.
(Yes, we really are that old.)
The Chuckle Brothers haven’t been on TV as much as they’ve wanted to over the years, as the comedy duo recently admitted they’ve been passed over by Celebrity Big Brother.
“I’d probably do Celebrity Big Brother,” Barry said. “We were asked and they were talking to us about it but nothing came of it. I think they thought we weren’t nasty enough.”
“Maybe one day we’ll give it a go,” Paul added. “It would be fun, as long as they’ve got whisky in there and not just beer and wine.”
A post-watershed Chuckle Brothers? We shudder at the thought.
