Paul Chuckle has corrected an unfortunate tweet in which he was mistaken for his late brother Barry.
Paul is starring in the pantomime Cinderella this Christmas at Woking Theatre, and will play Baron Hardup, alongside Craig Revel Horwood as the Wicked Stepmother.
In reference to the panto, a fan page tweeted: “Cinderella at Woking has a Panto legend joining the cast- Barry Chuckle as Baron! # panto @ PaulChuckle2 @ QdosPantomimes.”
Paul simply replied: “Paul.”
“Oh dear, oh dear,” one fan replied.
Following Barry’s death, Paul Chuckle appeared on ITV’s This Morning, where he revealed that Barry kept the extent of his bone cancer private.
“He had pain in his legs for about two years,” Paul explained. “We did pantomime a couple of years ago, and I said at the time, ‘It sounds like sciatica’, because I’ve had that before and it’s very, very painful.
“And that’s what he kept telling me it was for two years… He kept it from me and he kept it from our manager Phil, he didn’t want us to know because we would have said ‘no’… but he wanted to work until he died.
“He wanted to die on stage like Tommy Cooper, he just loved working and loved making people laugh.“
Talking about why he wanted to speak on TV so soon after Barry’s passing, Paul said: “It’s good to talk about him and get things out in the open. We were so close.”
