Paul Chuckle is to star in the upcoming series of "The Real Marigold Hotel".

The 71-year-old comedian flew out to India earlier this week with Dragons" Den's Duncan Bannatyne and former cricket commentator Henry Blofeld to film a new series of the upcoming BBC show, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

"The Real Marigold Hotel" follows a group of celebrities who travel to India to see whether they can find a more rewarding and fulfilling retirement than they have in the UK.

However, Duncan hinted in 2018 that he isn't ready to retire just yet.

The 70-year-old television star said last year he had no plans to do so as he didn't want to end up "having a lot of money and not knowing what to do with it".

But now the next series - which is based on the film "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", which is set in India and featured Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy - is heading back to the country.

Paul Chuckle: Comedy has helped me cope with heartbreak

Paul - who suffered a devastating blow last year when his brother and comedy sidekick Barry Chuckle passed away aged 73 - has made a plea to appear on real-life shows in the past.

The actor previously said he is keen to appear on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!", and while he "can't understand" why he is yet to be on the programme, he is hoping supporters will "tell ITV" that he would be a great addition to the series.

In response to a tweet from a fan who said he "has to" be on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" next year, he replied: "Tell @imacelebrity @ITV that (sic)"
