A CHILDREN’S comedy duo have been lined up to star in a North-East panto this year.

Paul and Barry Elliott, better known to millions as The Chuckle Brothers, will star in Aladdin, at Darlington Civic Theatre.

The brothers have become household names through their iconic children’s programme Chucklevision.

They have worked in practically every field of entertainment from television, pantomime, summer season, clubs, cabaret, touring revues, to circus and even an ice-show.

Their distinctive catchphrases and knack for bringing mayhem and chaos wherever they go has made them firm family favourites with children and adults alike.

Aladdin runs from December 7 this year to January 12, 2014.
