Paul Chuckle has paid tribute to his brother Barry two years after his death.

The Chucklevision star shared a sweet snap of the pair of them, penning a message to mark the date.

‘Can’t believe its been two years already, 5 August 2018, miss you Baz,’ he wrote, adding a broken-heart emoji.

Fans and friends of the brothers were quick to support the star – real name Paul Elliott.

Love Island narrator Iain Stirling, who began his career on CBBC, told him: ‘You two were such an inspiration to me when I started at CBBC and still are today. Thoughts with you and your family today x’.

Only Fools and Horses star John Challis shared a throwback with the brothers, writing: ‘My favourite pic with you both.Thinking of you today.’

One fan wrote: ‘Met you both a couple of times over the years, grew up watching Chucklevision and loved your theatre shows. Still can’t believe he’s gone, he’ll be missed!’

Meanwhile, another added: ‘Thoughts are with you. You two were hilarious and brilliant to watch growing up. I think its now impossible to do a two man lift without saying “to me, to you then!”’

He had kept it secret from his manager, fans, and Paul as he had wanted to perform for as long as possible.

Speaking to the Mirror after the loss of his brother, Paul explained he sees him in his sleep.

‘He’s been in so many of my dreams since he passed, and I believe in the afterlife – it’s comforting he’s contacting me that way,’ he said.

‘I talk about the good times with Sue, so I’m not just being upset, missing him. He wanted to work up until the end and he did it.’

‘I just miss those laughs we had on stage,’ Paul continued. ‘I can’t fathom that we’ll never have that laugh together anymore.’
