Ex Chuckle Brothers star Jimmy Patton has tied the knot with a 26-year old fan who he first ‘met’ on Facebook.
The 85 year-old is in fact the older brother of Paul and Barry Chuckle, often appearing alongside them in the popular children’s TV programme.
You may remember his famous catchphrase – “And remember…no slacking”.
Last weekend, Patton walked down the isle to meet his fiancé, Amy Phillips who is 59 years his junior; after popping the question in 2015.
The wedding took place at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre and the pair have even booked a honeymoon to Gran Canaria, for two weeks away in the sun.
Amy’s mother has stated that she is delighted for them: “The age gap doesn’t bother them or us at all. It’s love – so it doesn’t matter. Amy is happy and so are we. We are delighted and very proud.”
Patton stated that their love blossomed almost immediately: “Amy had been a fan of ChuckleVision all of her life and commented on something I posted. It just went from there. I never thought I’d find this kind of love again.”
