The elder Chuckle Brother, Barry Elliott, described former DJ Dave Lee Travis as a "jolly great chap to work with" whilst appearing as a defence witness in his trial for sexual charges. Appearing at London's Southwark Crown Court, Mr Elliott said he could not recall the alleged offences. He said:
He was fine as far as I can recall. He was fine. He was great. I mean everybody seemed to get on.
Asked if he remembered Travis ever "struggling" with a young female in his dressing room, Mr Elliott said:
I don't remember that no. If it was something serious we probably would, but I don't remember anything like that at all.
