The world was left saddened this past weekend by news that childhood hero Barry Chuckle had died at his home, aged 73. 

For over two decades, Barry & Paul Elliott made every kids day that bit better with their performance and hilarious antics as the Chuckle Brothers.

"To me, to you", "Oh dear oh dear" & more were classic catchphrases and in recent years the pair even recorded a track with Tinchy Stryder!

But did you know that there were actually four Chuckle Brothers?! How did we manage to miss that after all these years?

We all know and love Barry and Paul but there's actually Jimmy and Brian too and our minds have just officially been blown.

Jimmy and Brian even appeared in ChuckleVision on numerous occasions and went by the nicknames No Slacking and Getoutofit.

Jimmy and Brian are known as the Patton Brothers, but in the sixties and seventies they teamed up with Barry and Paul to form the Chuckle Brothers and appeared on several TV shows as a four-piece.
