“We are so delighted to win the Award for best returning comedy, and also slightly bereft, as you may or may not know Car Share has finally come to an end.

 

We’ve all worked so hard on it over the last seven years (can’t believe it’s been that long) and to receive support and adoration from the people who enjoyed watching both series and the finale makes it all worthwhile. Really sincerely, thank you.”

“On behalf of everyone who worked on Mother’s Day I’d love to take this opportunity to thank you all for voting us Best Single Drama for this year’s I Talk Telly Awards. What wonderful news.

 

25 years on from Warrington, the drama was made to honour the life of Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball and indeed all the children who died during The Troubles. It was a deeply moving and important film to work on and we’re incredibly appreciative and humbled you have chosen us.

 

With thanks to Colin and Wendy Parry and Sue and Arthur McHugh for allowing us to tell such a personal story and for their continued fight against terrorism and their tireless quest for everlasting peace.”

I’ve never won anything before, apart from some pea pods in French, which is really random. So I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone that actually took the time out to vote for me. I really really appreciate it.”

ELLIOT GONZALEZ

“This award was always going to go to ChuckleVision. How could it not? Paul and Barry have always been great supporters of the site and earlier this year I conducted what is believed to be Barry’s final interview before his sad passing. The outpouring of love and emotion back in August proved just how many people’s lives ChuckleVision touched.

Speaking to Paul about this award, I was shocked to discover that this is the first award ChuckleVision has ever received. They received a BAFTA in 2008, not specifically for the series but for their contribution to children’s television. I’m also very surprised that the BBC ended the series when they did and choose not to repeat it.”

They say that if you grew up in the nineties, you were either a BBC or an ITV kid, referring to the channel you switched on as soon as you got home from school.

For me, I'd walk through the front door, get changed out of my uniform and then sit in front of the television watching BBC One until Neighbours came on. 

 

Growing up, CBBC was home to some of my favourite programmes including The Queen's Nose, Grange Hill and Blue Peter, but one series which I enjoyed more than any other was ChuckleVision.

 

So it was only right that I honoured the series with the inaugural Special Recognition Award. As a child, nothing made me laugh more than the antics of Paul and Barry Chuckle (The Chuckle Brothers), played by real-life brothers Paul and Barry Elliott.

The series ran for an incredible 22 years, 21 series and 292 episodes and each 15/20 minute episode would centre around the two hapless brothers as they tried their hand at a number of tasks and professions.

Over the years they became plumbers, carpet fitters, removal men, decorators, waiters, butlers, bakers, magicians, caretakers, wrestlers, circus entertainers, hairdressers and even Safari Park keepers! You name it, they probably did it!

The series has cemented itself in popular culture with the series' main catchphrase "To me, to you" being used almost daily up and down the country. And on a personal note, I truly believe that my love affair with television comedy began with ChuckleVision.

So to write this, having interviewed the brothers twice is pretty surreal.

On the 5th August 2018, Barry sadly passed away at the age of 73 and the outpouring of love and admiration for him and the series was inescapable. People of all ages and demographics were sharing their fond memories of ChuckleVision. To still be remembered with such fondness all these years on, is a huge achievement. And one which should be recognised, celebrated and never forgotten.

For kickstarting my love for television comedy and bringing the world ChuckleVision I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and Barry for all that they have done.
