TO ME - to you!

Riotous Rotherham brothers Paul and Barry Chuckle are back on the box after being made the new stars of a TV advertisement campaign.

The Chuckle Brothers have picked up the baton for insurers Van Compare from cult advert star Andy Scott of 1970s glam-rock outfit The Sweet.

The terrible twosome are best known for their CBBC programme Chucklevision - the longest-running sitcom in the UK.

Chucklevision has been going for 22 years of slapstick jokes, japes, pranks, disasters and DIY foul-ups all delivered in South Yorkshire accents.

Besides the advert the brothers are also working on a 3D spoof-horror movie, which is rumoured for release some time in the new year.

The brothers are well known Rotherham United fans.
