Paul, 74, shared how Barry, who died of lung cancer in 2018 at the age of 73, performed as her ChuckleVision theme played.

He remembers: “I did pantomime somewhere for the first time that year. I’ve never been alone on stage – except as a DJ.

“I remember standing in the wings waiting for my entrance and the music.

“Barry would be on the other side where he would come in and he wasn’t there.

“But I swear I could see him off the stage and he’s nodding and winking at me.

“It gave me confidence to go on stage and the audience gave me a wonderful lift. That was lovely.

“He was my brother, my work partner, my best mate. . . everything.”

Yorkshireman Paul, real name Paul Elliott, told comedian Richard Herring’s RHLSTP podcast: “When Barry was ill he said, ‘You’ve got to keep running the business. Don’t pack it.

“I said, ‘Yeah, but you were half of me, you know? Without you I’m only half what I was.

“And he’s like, ‘You’ll find something, just keep going. Just go on’.”
