Paul Chuckle is best known for appearing alongside his brother Barry Chuckle on their popular children’s TV show ChuckleVision. Tonight Paul will feature in a celebrity special of Pointless, as the show includes some familiar faces from Children’s TV over the years. But how is the Chuckle brother related to Gogglebox stars Sophie and Pete?

Paul and his brother Barry first hit our screens in 1987 on their children’s comedy series ChuckleVision.

The show aired for more than two decades with the brothers having become known for their iconic catchphrase, ‘To me… to you’.

The brothers previously admitted their catchphrase was something they had always said to each other.

They explained: “We’ve used it ever since we were kids at home, if we were moving a chair or something.

Paul still feels Barry by his side, he claimed. He said: “Every time when I work, I always feel that he is there with me and it is a nice feeling.

“It is a nice feeling that he is there helping me all the way along.”
