arry Chuckle was left out of the TV BAFTAs" In Memoriam section because he has already been honoured.
Fans were disappointed the late comedian wasn't featured in the video recognising the stars who passed away in the last year - which featured the likes of Leslie Grantham and Luke Perry - but the organisation has revealed why he wasn't included.
Responded to a fan on Twitter, BAFTA said: "Barry was featured at our Children's Awards back in November.
"Owing to the number of people we can recognise at any one time, names are featured within a ceremony only once."
The comment - which also pointed out that the "Chucklevision" star was honoured in the event's official brochure - came after Barry's brother Paul tweeted to agree with fans" disappointment.
He wrote: "I quite agree my friend. We received our BAFTA's ten years ago. He should have been mentioned @BAFTA"
Barry's manager Phil Dale announced the sad news that the entertainer had "passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his wife Ann and all his family" in August last year aged 73 after a battle with cancer.
Speaking earlier this year, Paul admitted he would miss Barry "greatly".
He said: "All his life, one of his problem was that he hated going to see the doctor. He hated hospitals. He couldn't stand the smell of them.
"And probably that was a big thing towards his downfall. A lot of men are like that. I'm not ... because my missus tells me to go and get that sorted, go and see what that is. But that's right. You should go."
