Putting this here because as I understand it is to be a sketch/variety type show. I may get derision for this but the Chuckle Brothers are back on the telly and it might be the best news I've heard all year.

Saturday 16th June 17:05 on Channel 5

What did you think? Yes the jokes were a bit laboured and their delivery felt a bit forced but you know what? I didn't care one jot. It's a joy to have them on telly again and actually a lot of the clips I found really funny.

It was a little heavier on the clips and lighter on the linking bits and sketches than I had expected from the description, but lots of fun none the less.

Anything that gets them on telly is a good thing. Love them.

Just remembered I forgot to mention this in my review of Gracie Field's film "This Week of Gracie" from 1933 - at the start of the film, her father and dim-witted brother have a small car workshop and a customer turns up in a very old jalopy saying it doesn't make the right noises, and then it packs up in the entrance, so they have to push it in with the father saying "To you, to me, now to you, to me"

I wonder if that's where the brothers got the catchphrase from, thinking no one is ever going to see where "our" catchphrase comes from...................or is it pure coincidence?
