Paul Chuckle Is Selling COVID-Themed Merchandise

The 73-year-old actor whose brother Barry died in 2018 – is selling face masks for £10 to fans of his TV show ‘ChuckleVision’.

The masks feature the phrase “2 Metre U” on them – in reference to the comedy duo’s “To me, to you” catchphrase.

The TV star – who appeared on ‘ChuckleVision’ for more than 20 years – has already managed to sell as many as 1,279 items to his fans, including a £13.50 coffee cup.

One of the shoppers told The Sun newspaper: “He’s doing incredibly well. It’s amazing.

“Even after all these years Paul has a massive fan base.”

Paul previously admitted he misses working with his sibling.

The comedy star described himself as “Ernie Wise to his Eric Morecambe”.

He explained: “I miss working with Barry. He made me laugh at the drop of a hat.

“When Barry died, he wanted me to carry on, so I did about 15 clubs that November. They probably wanted to see me before I popped off too! But, really, I wasn’t sure how I’d ever work again without him. I was the feed and he was the comic. I was the Ernie Wise to his Eric Morecambe.”

Paul also admitted to missing the “older type of entertainment” on TV.

The veteran funnyman said: “For some reason, the people that run TV nowadays think that we don’t want variety shows on TV anymore. But people absolutely love ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and ‘Strictly’.

“That older type of entertainment, well, people miss it. ‘Porridge’ reruns gets good ratings not because it’s nostalgic, but because it’s funny!”
