Boycie at Waterstone’s

Being Boycie Cover

Actor John Challis will forever be Boycie from the BBC’s mega-successful Only Fools and Horses. So much so that he and Marlene were reunited in its spin off series The Green Green Grass.

John will be signing copies of his autobiography Being Boycie at Waterstones King’s Lynn on Friday 20 April, and there’s more than a little local coincidence to his appearance.

When John chose to self-publish his biography it meant auditioning printers who could provide a bespoke service. From the pick of several John eventually singled out King’s Lynn’s very own MPG Biddles who came complete with more than a hundred years’ printing experience.

Customer Service Executive Theresa Loosley, who joined Biddles in 1980, couldn’t have been more pleased by John’s choice, and when she and Operations Manager Gary Mackney meet up with John again at the signing it’ll see the book come full circle.

‘Working with John and his wife Carol was a delight,’ she says. ‘We knew he had the pick of the crop, but he came to the factory, looked at samples and worked closely with us to ensure the finished product was exactly what he’d envisaged.’

Both Gary and Theresa were there in London for the book’s launch in September 2011 and when John appeared on ITV’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show it was Biddles who ensured the product was there on time for the interview.

As for John himself, currently enjoying a highly successful tour of Waterstones branches right across the country, he’s already tweeted his forthcoming appearance to his many followers: “For a moment there I thought I was going to Kuala Lumpur, but no, much better, it’s King’s Lynn!”

John Challis will be arriving at Waterstones, Norfolk Street, King’s Lynn at 11.00am on Friday 20 April.
