    I thought Challis played Boycie the mason perfectly. He was never a great actor but he played Boycie with just the right amount of satire. A guy who claimed to forget his old * but was never truly comfortable unless he was “slumming it” in the nags head.

    Sad news. RIP
    Boycie was a great character like all the OFAH characters.
    Don’t think Challis was ever married to Doon MacKichan though :43:

    Correction, further to my opening post, I have subsequently learned that Boycie and Cathy (from Two Doors Down) have never been romantically involved… I am a Plonker.

    R.I.P Boycie. I've been singing Chas N Dave's Margate all morning, thinking about 'Jolly Boy's Outing'. One of the great episodes imo.

    been watching repeats of his spin off, green green grass, not as good as OFAH, but compared to some of the * today its an Oscar winner.
    sad news.
