Alice Webb, director of BBC Children's, said: "Barry was loved by both the audience and his colleagues at BBC Children's.

"He'll be sorely missed by all who knew him. We hope by making the final ever series of ChuckleVision available that viewers old and new can enjoy Barry and Paul's unique brand of kids' comedy."
