They have regularly appeared in pantomime. The duo comprises wife Janette Tough and her husband Ian.
As the Krankies they portray schoolboy Wee Jimmy Krankie (Janette), and paternal figure Ian Krankie (Ian), though in their comedy act they also portray other characters.
Beginning in the 1990s, they regularly appeared as The Krankies in episodes of the BBC comedy series French and Saunders.
Meet the Krankies who admitted to an amazing sexual past in 2012…..
In a 2008 interview, David Tennant (jokingly) suggested that he would like Wee Jimmy Krankie to take over the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who. In 2009, 14 December, they once again were on the Paul O’Grady show for the pantomime special of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ where Janette played a hooker and Ian played a rampant camel.
This was billed as the last ever Paul O’Grady pantomime. The duo appeared on ITV’s daytime show Loose Women on 25 February 2010.
During the 2010 panto season, the Krankies made a re-appearance to Scottish panto alongside John Barrowman at the SECC for Aladdin.
They appeared as the Police, with Janette parodying Susan Boyle and Lady Gaga, and making an appearance as Wee Jimmy Krankie.
In December 2011, during an appearance on BBC Radio Scotland’s Stark Talk programme, Ian Tough revealed the couple had enjoyed a colourful sex life at the time when their profile was at its highest in the 1980s, admitting to episodes of swinging.
He told the story of one amorous incident where the pair almost sailed off course to France in a small boat while partaking in a sex act
