In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, Only Fools & Horses, the much-loved television show, will be making its way to London’s West End in 2019, reimagined as a musical. With so much excitement surrounding this announcement, we’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane, and have rounded up our top 10 all time favourite moments from the classic BBC show.
10. Pranking Grandad
Bless Grandad and his dimwittedness! In this classic scene, Del Boy gets a bit of karma and a taste of his own medicine while scaring his dear old Grandad.
9. Blow up dolls
As if it wasn’t hilarious enough that Del Boy had managed to accidentally get his hands on a faulty stock of naughty dolls, they then also turn out to be deadly!
8. Baby names
Oh, Trigger. Perhaps one of the most simpleminded characters ever written, you can’t help but love him and his lack of sense! In one of his many classic moments, here we see him discussing Del Boy’s baby names with ‘Dave’.
Another classic Trigger moment takes the number 7 spot. Only Trigger, after finally being told Rodney’s real name, could still miss the mark and continue to call him Dave!
6. The Poker Game
In what could be classed as one of the most intense poker games we’ve ever witnessed, Del Boy gets one up on Boycie. Let’s be honest, it was about time that somebody put Boycie in his place!
5. We’re finally millionaires
Taking the number 5 spot is the moment that finally saw Del Boy and Rodney’s dreams of being millionaires come true. Of course, they celebrated in true Trotter style!
4. The Canary
Only the Trotters could find a dead canary and make the situation worse! At number four is the riotously hilarious moment that saw Del Boy forking out £50 to replace a bird he hadn’t even killed.
3. Batman & Robin
Perhaps one of the most notorious moments in British TV history, Del Boy and Rodney took to the streets as the caped crusader and his winged partner – with all the hilarious consequences that you’d expect from the Trotters.
2. The Wrong Chandelier
Just missing out on the top stop (it was a pretty tough decision) is the moment that saw Del Boy and Rodney smash a near priceless chandelier – as only they could!
1. Del falls through the bar
Of course, irrefutably taking the top spot, is the infamous moment in which Del Boy redefines ‘playing it cool’, by falling through the open bar behind him. In a move that rivals even Trigger’s stupidity, even Del Boy can’t style out the embarrassment of this moment!
