Comedian Paul Elliot AKA Paul Chuckle, told This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langford, that his Brother Barry actually died of bone cancer.
Paul went on to say “I’ve not just lost my brother, I’ve lost my theatrical partner of many, many years and my very best friend.”
“The family would like to express their thanks to the many people who have been fans of the Chuckle Brothers and they know that they will share in part the great, great loss they feel.”
Paul also discussed the pair’s famous catchphrase “To me, to you,” on This Morning.
Eamonn asked: “It was actually about furniture removal wasn’t it?”
Paul agreed: “Yeah, we didn’t mean for it to be a catchphrase… it just happened.”
The BBC plan to show a Chuckle Brothers marathon later this year in memory of Barry Elliot.
