Chuckle Brothers star Jimmy Patton, 85, marries 26-year-old fan he met on Facebook

Barry and Paul Chuckle’s older brother, Jimmy Patton, has tied the knot with his fiancée Amy Phillips.

The ChuckleVision star, 85, married the 26-year-old at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre on April 15, and are set to enjoy their honeymoon in Gran Canaria.

Jimmy met his new bride on Facebook, and popped the question in 2015 following an 18 month romance.

Amy’s mum, Mary, 65, told The Sun: “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.”

“Bobby Dennis the comedian came and so did Bernie Clifton. They are Jimmy’s mates and they both did speeches – they had everyone in fits of laughter.

“She had her best friend as a bridesmaid and maid of honour, she had three little page boys, two of our grandsons along with another family friend.”

She added: “Bobby Dennis the comedian came and so did Bernie Clifton. They are Jimmy’s mates and they both did speeches – they had everyone in fits of laughter.

“She had her best friend as a bridesmaid and maid of honour, she had three little page boys, two of our grandsons along with another family friend.

“They’re off to their honeymoon to Gran Canaria next week. They are away for two weeks. Jimmy loves his holidays, he’s always in the sun.”

Jimmy regularly appeared on the BBC Children’s programme, alongside his younger brothers Barry and Paul Elliot.

His wife Valerie sadly passed away almost seven years ago, and speaking about his unlikely relationship with his new bride after their engagement, the comedian said: “Amy has been a fan of Chucklevision all of her life and commented on something I posted.

“It just went from there. I never thought I would find this kind of love again.”

He said of the proposal: “It was emotional. Thankfully she said yes. We haven’t set a date yet, but we are very happy.”

Chuckle Brothers Barry, 72, and Paul, 69, were not at the wedding, however their other brother, Brian, 82, did attend.

Congrats to you both!
