Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise began their award-winning double-act in 1941 after meeting in Jack Hylton's revue, Youth Takes a Bow at the Nottingham Empire Theatre. They temporarily separated during the war, but reformed after and went on to star in a series of hit shows that spanned over 20 years and included the ratings smash The Morecambe and Wise Show.
