About the previous sibling competition, Jeremy told Saga Magazine, “I felt more threatened. I was the geek – the nerd. Tim had all friends. I didn’t really have any and kept thinking, ‘I only have’ have two friends and Tim is 18. “

But the Channel 5 host says he’s more protective of his younger brother now.

Jeremy continued, “But the strange thing is that I now feel incredibly protected. When Tim won the Best One-Liner Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, I heard Evan Davis on Radio 4’s Today show.

“He read it out: ‘I’ve just been on a one-off vacation. I’ll never tell you anything again.’ Then he said, ‘It’s pretty funny, but the best joke on the side?’ I was angry. I wanted to throw my radio out the window. “

For ten years, Tim held the record for the most jokes told in an hour. With the title through 2014, the jokes had to make the paying audience laugh to be counted.

Tim and Jeremy also have a sister named Sonya.
