Paul went on to encourage his followers to add their memories of his brother to a special tributes page. He said: "I feel Barry with me all the time. It’s nice to know he’s remembered by so many."

He shared a message from Rotherham United, the team Barry had been an honorary life president for. The team's football club was also the location of Barry's funeral in 2018.

The official account posted: "Forever in our hearts. @PaulChuckle2, you and Barry brought so much joy to so many households, putting Rotherham on the map in the process.
