Great news for ChuckleVision fans – Barry and Paul Chuckle are making a TV comeback with a new comedy series.

According to the Sun, the famous pair will front a new show called Chuckle Time on Saturday that will air on Channel 5 at teatime.

Barry, 73, and Paul, 70, are said to be hosting a new show that’s in a similar style to classic clip show You’ve Been Framed!, and a source claims that it’ll be perfect family entertainment.

‘It’s going to be fun for all the family, a bit like You’ve Been Framed! but with more of the brothers’ own input,’ a comedy source told the paper.

‘Paul and Barry have spent their lives falling over and making the public laugh, now they are watching us make fools of ourselves.’

So Television will make the brothers’ new show and will span 12 hour-long episodes.

The Chuckle Brothers were a kids TV staple during the 1980s and 1990s, with ChuckleVision proving to be a favourite amongst kids back in the day.

The duo got their first big break when they competed on and won the talent show Opportunity Knocks way back in 1967.

ChuckleVision began in 1987 and ran for an incredible 22 years, until 2009. During this time the brothers starred in nearly 300 episodes that saw them getting into all sorts of precarious misadventures.

The pair are considered icons of British pop culture and recently appeared in an episode of ITV 1’s comedy series Benidorm.
