Chuckle brothers surprised at DLT Crawley pantomime
5:59pm Monday 3rd February 2014 in News
A children's entertainer has told a court it was "a complete surprise" to hear claims veteran DJ Dave Lee Travis indecently assaulted a stage hand at a pantomime they were starring in.
Paul Elliott, one half of the Chuckle Brothers, starred alongside Travis in a production of Aladdin in the early 1990s in Crawley, a crown court heard.
Travis, who was playing "evil uncle" Abanazar in the show, is accused of indecently assaulting a female crew member in his theatre dressing room during the panto's run.
The woman, who was 21 at the time of the alleged incident, has previously told the court her ordeal ended when they were interrupted by one of the Chuckle Brothers walking past in the corridor.
Mr Elliott said Travis was "very professional" during the panto.
The comedian added he did not recall any particular incident when a female stage hand had left Travis's dressing room.
