Paul Chuckle Does His First DJ Set Without Brother Barry By His Side

Just weeks after the sad death of his brother Barry, Paul Chuckle has been spotted out and about proving that the show really must go on.

The bereaved Chuckle Brother only lost his brother, show business partner, and best friend a matter of weeks ago, but was booked to DJ at a nightclub in Darlington.

Rather than let down his public, who seemed to be having a fantastic night judging from the video footage, he got back on the horse and went out to do what he does best - entertain people.

In the video, the crowd can be seen chanting the Chuckle Brothers' famous catchphrase "to me, to you" back at him as he stands with the microphone playing the tunes.

It actually looks like Paul is really enjoying himself, which is good - and he's keeping busy, which is important after something like this.

At one stage, he blew a kiss and pointed to the sky - as he did at a football match at his beloved Rotherham United - as if to show that Barry was still on his mind.

On the day of the performance, Paul posted a rather forlorn looking selfie in which he was sitting in what appeared to be a restaurant. He tweeted: "It's strange being here without Barry."

Tragic stuff.

Luckily, the internet isn't always an awful place, and a lot of people went to the tweet to offer him some comfort. He obviously took it on board as it looked like he had a good night DJing at the nightclub Inside Out.

Barry and Paul had been working on a new show together for Channel 5, entitled Chuckle Time. It was cut short following Barry's death.

Barry and Paul's brother Jimmy revealed that Barry had kept his illness a secret until he was very close to the end.

He said: "We are all devastated. Barry had bone cancer which had spread to his lungs.

"He was ill for years, but kept it hidden. We knew about it, but kept it quiet, and all the family are really hurting right now."

It's good to see Paul back on the road and giving people a great night out - just as his brother and best mate would have wanted it.
