John Challis’ life to be honoured with Gold TV telethon

OHMYGOSSIP — John Challis’ life will be honoured with a Gold TV telethon this weekend.
The late actor – who played Boycie in iconic BBC sitcom ‘Only Fools and Horses’ – died peacefully in his sleep after a long battle with cancer last week, and to remember him the channel is treating fans to a number of episodes of ‘Only Fools’ and spin-off show ‘The Green Green Grass’.
A post on the ‘Only Fools and Horses’ Instagram account read: “@uktv GOLD Channel has your weekend viewing sorted!
“Some Chusty Only Fools and Horses episodes that all feature Boycie as a lovely tribute to John Challis”
On Saturday (25.09.21), Gold will screen classic ‘Only Fools’ episodes such as ‘To Hull and Back’ – a 1985 Christmas special in which Del Boy and Rodney Trotter (Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst) agreed to smuggle diamonds from Amsterdam for Boycie.
Other episodes set to be repeated including ‘Sleeping Dogs Lie’, from the show’s fourth series.
During the ep, market traders Del Boy and Rodney are tasked with babysitting Boycie and his wife Marlene’s (Sue Holderness) cherished Great Dane dog Duke.
And on Sunday (26.09.21), a host of episodes of ‘The Green Green Grass’ – a spin-off in which Boycie and Marlene fled Peckham to escape the wrath of the Driscoll brothers, and set up home on a farm in Shropshire – will air, as will more ‘Only Fools’.
Sue paid tribute to John earlier this week.
She said: “Marlene without Boycie – it’s unthinkable. John Challis was my partner on screen and stage for 36 years and my beloved friend. RIP darling John. I will miss you every day.”
David said: “It is with much sadness to hear that John Challis, a dear friend, has passed away.
“He was a wonderful actor, a gentleman in the true sense of the word and I know he will be missed by so many.”
