Fun House twins Melanie and Martina - where they are 23 years after show went off air

Twins Melanie and Martina Grant was a huge part of a lot of people's childhoods when they starred in hit gameshow Fun House.

The two - alongside Pat Sharp - kept things light and entertaining as they showed off their cheerleading skills on television in the 90s.

It has been around 23 years since the show went off the air but the two are still making money from it thanks to personal appearances.

Through their website funhousetwins, fans of the show can hire them for private parties and more.

Even Martina's Instagram, which is under the handle funhouseyellowtwin1, follows the Fun House theme.

Their description on their website reads: "Melanie and Martina, know how to have fun – they bring the party with them wherever they go and are attentive hostesses who can help organisers make sure the party goes with a bang.

"When not partying, Mel and Martina dream about being on Strictly, Dancing on Ice or I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here – after that it’s a pretty normal life looking after kids, going on the school run and going out to PARTY for themselves."

Fun House had children compete on two different teams (ITV)

Fun House aired for ten years starting from 1989 and had two teams from representing schools around the UK completing challenges in hopes of winning a prize.

The show returned for a one-off Fun House event in 2015.

As seen on Martina's Instagram page, the twins still spend a lot of time together.

In November 2020, the show's host Pat Sharp and the twins finally reunited.

He had appeared on This Morning to promote his book, Re-Run the Fun: My Life As Pat Sharp.

While discussing the reason behind writing a 'spoof memoir' instead of a real one with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, he was shocked with a surprise.

The twin cheerleaders who represented the red team and the yellow team on the show, show up as a pre-recorded message to congratulate him on his new autobiography.

Martina had said: "Hi Pat, hi Phil, Hi Holly, I'm one of the twins from Fun House but Pat you know that anyway. Just flicked through the book to find my name, but who doesn't do that."

Melanie added: "Hope it all goes well, bye."
