From my perspective, it is a bit old fashioned, but not so old fashioned as to sound strange or out of place. It is still in use, but not as common as it used to be. 'Chuffed to bits' has a slightly different meaning, it means that something gave a lot of pleasure, while 'tickled to death' means that it was funny and caused laughter

Yes, it is old fashioned. You could say, “I was well chuffed” but this is slang.

Good evening Igor. 1. Tickled to Death is not old fashioned; It's an idiom which is still in use. 2. Old-fashioned should be spelled this way. Whatsapp me +233550271318. I would like to help you get better in English. Thanks!
