Only Fools and Horses star John Challis forced to cancel tour amid secret health battle
Only Fools and Horses’ Boycie star John Challis, 79, has been forced to cancel his one man speaking tour due to a secret health battle. The actor had completed one date of his scheduled performances for the tour, named Only Fools And Boycie, but is now unable to continue.
He was due to embark on a 30 day tour, which was set to end in November.
A statement from the tour promoter A Way With Media said: “Due to ill health, John’s tour is cancelled with immediate effect.
“He completed the first show of his present tour, intending to continue. However, he has been advised to cancel further engagements.”
The actor, who was one of the main stars in Only Fools and Horses alongside Sir David Jason, was told just days ago that he shouldn’t go ahead with the tour, according to The Sun.

“They love Boycie, Trigger, Del Boy, Rodney… they have murals of them all over the place.”
After John released his documentary, the Deputy Mayor of Belgrade, Goran Vesic, took the opportunity to thank the actor for his services to the city, so he was formally offered honorary Serbian citizenship.
Mr Vesic said: “Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said to me she would give the passport to him personally when he comes to Belgrade.”
John gushed in response: “I was just flabbergasted. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me really.”
