ONLY Fools and Horses star John Challis, a household name for his portrayal of used car dealer Boycie in the hit TV show, is coming to Hexham with his one-man theatre show.

The show draws on anecdotes and behind-the scenes secrets from John’s colourful career which spans more than 50 years, in theatre, on television, and in several movies.

John, who has also appeared in ITV comedy Benidorm, and headlined the Only Fools spin-off comedy The Green Green Grass, will be visiting more than 30 theatres between September 12 and November 11 and is stopping off in Hexham on Tuesday.

John said: “In the show, I talk about my Only Fools and Horses co-stars like Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, my memorable encounter with The Beatles, and recall tales from my time in Dr Who, Coronation Street and other TV classics.

“And afterwards, I stop to sign autographs and pose for selfies.”
