Chuckle Brothers star looked dreadful when he shaved off trademark moustache

Chuckle Brother icon Paul Elliott said he looked “dreadful” the one and only time he shaved off his trademark moustache.

The 75-year-old funnyman, whose elder brother Barry – other half of the Chuckle Brothers – died of cancer in 2018, said he would never lose it again.

Asked about his comedy life, the ChuckleVision star said his first gig was at the Edinburgh Palladium, adding: “I didn’t have a moustache then.

“I didn’t grow that until I was 23 and I’ve only shaved it once, to raise cash for Marie Curie.

“I looked dreadful. I won’t be doing that again.”

Paul also revealed how he “felt” his brother with him when he performed now. He said: “While it is hard to perform without him, I still think Barry is with me, especially when I’m working.

“I’m a lot funnier now than when I was feeding Barry the lines.

“I feel that he’s inside me, like he is delivering the words; the timing is all his.

“It’s a nice feeling.”

Paul has previously admitted how he would've given up his famed comedy career for a chance to become a professional footballer with beloved team Rotherham United.

He was on course to become a pro as a teen before injury ruined his chances of making it big. Speaking on his career-ending injury on BBC radio, via Facebook, Paul recalled: "I got injured playing for Rotherham boys, the whole leg, it damaged the lymphatic tissues.

"They don't know how I did it and I just couldn't run. I was 14."

He added when asked if he would've given up the fame for a career with the Championship side: "Without a breath of thought, definitely. I just loved the game, I absolutely loved the game."
