We all awoke to the sad news on Sunday morning that legendary children’s entertainer Barry Chuckle had passed away at the age of 73 following a long battle with bone cancer. RIP.

Although this is obviously awful news, it does mean that we’re going to be seeing a multitude of tributes to him in the coming weeks and the BBC have already released one of the most obvious ones, by adding ChuckleVision to the iPlayer so everyone can see what it was all about and remember some truly great moments from their childhood. Or maybe even their adult lives too.
Director of BBC Children’s, Alice Webb said the following about the decision:
Barry was loved by both the audience and his colleagues at BBC Children’s. He’ll be sorely missed by all who knew him.
We hope by making the final ever series of ChuckleVision available that viewers old and new can enjoy Barry and Paul’s unique brand of kids’ comedy.
Great work from the BBC there and a fitting tribute to a man who can only be described as a legend. Here’s hoping he managed to figure out how to get those couches up the stairs up there in heaven. To me, to you right?
