I wonder if this fella ever got a cease and desist from the Sullivans
I like how he tries to let Les down gently... "It is Albert...or is it Grandad...?"

"That was me doing Rodney!"

It's always a shame to seen an iconic character reduced to a broad series of ticks and catchphrases. Mind you, the show did that before anyone else.

Ironically, Les Dennis will be taking on the role of Grandad in the Only Fools and Horses musical from October.

Quote...Alison noted there are 20 years of content to pull from so the decision to pinpoint specific moments for the show "must have been difficult." Paul said: "It was a collaborative process really and we whittled it down and down but kept those big gags and references in but we had to add the actual music and dances where people think "why are they dancing, knock him spark out."

Les said: "People come round to it pretty quick and it doesn't feel unnatural at all really. I'm so excited, like everyone else, I would tune in weekly to watch the exploits of the Trotters and would laugh and cry in equal measure. It was both funny and touching.

He added: "Jim [Sullivan] and Paul have written a wonderful show that beautifully recreates that feel-good era of British comedy. I can't wait to join the hugely talented cast and be a part of it."

Discussing some of their favourite moments, everyone agreed the chandelier scene was a stand-out, but Les said "there are so many to choose from" which is one of the reasons he was so thrilled to be a part of the show. He added the comedy has been able to transcend generations and still holds up incredibly well to this day.

Seeing as Whitehouse played Grandad as Unlucky Alf with a cockney accent, I'm hoping Dennis plays Grandad as Mavis Riley with a cockney accent.

That is ironic as his Rodney wasnt bad. Maurice was just taking the piss

I love the way there's complete radio silence from the audience, when Les Dennis asks them, "who do you think he looks like?"

But then he puts on a hat, does a terrible cockney accent and they are all in hysterics.

I've been forcing my American friend to watch all of OFAH with me. Show gets really naff beginning with Mother Nature's Son.
