John Challis


Recommended Posts

The man famous for playing Boycie in Only Fools has passed away today too after a short battle with cancer. Not many of the great cast left now surely.

RIP John Challis, was perfectly cast for the part of Boycie, and was written many great lines by the late great John Sullivan, as we're the rest of the cast too.

Can't see David Jason being around too much longer sadly. Maybe a couple of more years but he's a fair old age now.

Here here. Rip big man.

 

Probably the most unlikeable, loveable character in British TV history. 😄

 

I can almost hear the Boycie laugh whilst posting.

And bizarrely it turns out him and Ice T were buddies on Twitter. 

 

 

 

This has made me smile. 

Never in your wildest dreams would you put those two together. 

 

Fair play to Ice T for the tribute. 👏

 

RIP Boycie.
