Chuckle brother hurt in crash

Chuckle brother Paul Elliott

Life isn't so funny for Chuckle Brothers star Paul Elliott after he was injured in a motorbike smash.

He was injured when he fell off his bike during a family holiday on the Greek island of Kefalonia.

Paul and brother Barry are the stars of BBC1 show Chuckle Vision. He broke his nose and received cuts and bruises.

Some British tourists stopped at the accident, but instead of helping him out, they shouted out the Chuckle Brothers' catchphrase: "To me, to you."

Paul also got a black eye, but that shouldn't hinder his Chuckle vision.

The comedian said he was enjoying the ride when there was a steep curve in the road - and came across a shepherd with his flock of goats.

He said: "As I braked I lost control and I'm not sure exactly what happened. The next thing I knew, I was on the floor with the motorbike on top of me."
