When we talk about the 1990s, we can’t help but feel nostalgic about our childhood. The days when the internet was not fully appreciated yet and our only form of entertainment was watching one of our favorite children shows, Bananas in Pyjamas.
Started on July 20, 1992, Bananas in Pyjamas is an Australian children’s television series about two anthropomorphic bananas named B1 and B2. They lived in a village called “Cuddles Avenue”, where they are neighbors to Amy, Lulu, Morgan, and Rat in a Hat. For 20 years, these iconic characters surely entertained us with memorable episodes and catchy songs. But after their final episode aired in 2012, we are now wondering what happened to the cast and where are they now?
In one of The Greatest Dancer’s episodes, viewers took a trip down memory lane after a contestant named Mark Short revealed that at some point, he played B1 in Bananas in Pyjamas.
And because B1 and B2 are identical twins, it isn’t fair to let this episode pass without knowing what the other banana is up to. Short mentioned that he and Ashley, the person who played B2 have been in a loving relationship for a long time now.
“I was one of the Bananas in Pyjamas. I was B1 and my partner was B2, and 26 years later we’re still together.”
Apparently, viewers at home immediately tweeted their thoughts about it.
ok the bananas in pyjamas got married to each other and it’s genuinely the best fact I’ve ever heard in my entire life

Just watching #GreatestDancer and found myself quite emotional at the Bananas in Pyjamas having become a couple and still together 26 years later! Something in my eye.

Although this episode gave viewers all the feels, Short still didn’t get enough votes from the audience in the auditorium.
After all, Short believed that dancing is about making yourself and other people happy.
“I just want to carry on dancing and have fun,” he said.
