They said: 'As a family we would welcome fans to celebrate his life and pay their respects with us, outside of the NY stadium.

The venue is home to Rotherham Untied FC, of which Barry and Paul were honorary life presidents.

"There is an event for invited family and close friends which respectfully is private and by invite only".

Paul tweeted his thanks to fans today for their messages of support and said "it's the worst feeling ever".

"But I have to carry on as I know Barry would want me to, having always been so supportive of each other in both work and our personal lives", he said.

"We are overwhelmed with the love and support we have received over the last few days, and thank everyone concerned", the statement concluded. What was the cause of death?

Barry Chuckle died peacefully at home surrounded by his family at the age of 73.

He told The Sun: "We are all devastated".

In it, Paul revealed he had no idea about the full extent of Barry's illness until recently, following their eldest brother Jimmy's revelation Barry had been suffering from bone cancer prior to his death that had spread to his lungs. "We knew about it, but kept it quiet, and all the family are really hurting right now".

Paul previously said he did not know "until fairly recently" how ill his brother was.

He told the Press Association: "I still can't believe he's gone and that we will never perform together again".

"The family would like to express their thanks to the many people who have been fans of the Chuckle Brothers and they know that they will share in part the great, great loss they feel".

"He always said that he wanted to die on stage and that he would work right to the end which he more or less did". He will be sorely missed and I am in a daze!

The comedian, real name Barry Elliott, was known for his slapstick routines, visual humour, and recurring catchphrases "to me (to you)" and "oh dear, oh dear" along with his brother, Paul.
