Children’s television favourite Barry Chuckle has revealed he felt like a traitor while filming the new series of Open All Hours in Doncaster.

For the comic star, real name Barry Elliott and one half of the much-loved Chuckle Brothers with his brother Paul, was forced to wear Doncaster Rovers gear for the filming shoot in Balby - even though he is a diehard Rotherham United fan.

The star tweeted a picture of himself on the set in Lister Avenue sporting a Rovers scarf and coat with the caption: “This is my outfit for Still Open All Hours. Makes me feel like a ‘traitor’!!!”

His character briefly appeared in the Christmas special of the corner shop sitcom revival and it is thought he has reprised the role for the new series, filming of which took place in Doncaster earlier this year.

Studio filming is currently underway and the series is set to air later this year.

The Rotheram born stars are both huge fans of the New York Stadium based club and were appointed honorary presidents of the Millers in 2007.
