TWO of television's best-loved characters will be entertaining audiences in Weston next month.

Only Fools and Horses favourites Boycie and Marlene (John Challis and Sue Holderness), will be sharing some of the show's most memorable moments, while members of the audience will have an opportunity to meet the stars and throw them a few questions at The Playhouse.

The BBC classic is Britain's most popular sit-com of all time, beginning in 1981 and going on to receive 24.3million viewers for the Christmas special in 1986, making it the UK's most watched television programme of all time.

For many years John Challis has enjoyed a successful career in theatre, film and radio, as well as numerous TV appearances.

Sue Holderness has also worked consistently in radio, film and television.

Her West End plays include The Female Odd Couple, Why Not Stay for Breakfast and the highly-acclaimed one-woman play Our Kid (based on Myra Hindley).

Sue regularly appears in the Vagina Monologues and has toured the country extensively in numerous plays.

Check out the well-loved couple in the High Street venue at 7.30pm on February 20.

Tickets, priced £12-14, are available on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk

*The Weston & Somerset Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer three lucky readers the chance to win tickets to see Boycie and Marlene.

To enter the competition, simply answer the following question: In which year did Only Fools & Horses begin?

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor's decision is final.
