    Last night I met John Challis at one of his ‘Being Boycie’ events, and asked him about any scenes that were particularly memorable for him but never made it to screen.

    He first talked about the infamous Boycie/Mickey/Jevon scene which was featured on this site previously.

    However he did talk a little about another scene which never made it to air which I don’t think has been mentioned before.

    It was a scene that was recorded for an episode in series four and again featured Boycie and Marlene’s dog Duke. Boycie and Marlene attend a gypsy wedding but Marlene is upset that Duke hasn’t been invited. John said that one his lines was

    ‘Well it’s not often that great dane’s are invited to weddings’.

    I thought this might be of interest to the fans to see if anyone could work out what episode this might of come from.

      These are the sorts of questions I will be asking when I attend one of his gigs. Although, I am going to refrain from reading more about his gig’s because I want it all to be fresh!

      I tweeted John Challis some time ago and asked if he or any of the actors received unedited copies of OFAH to which he replied, no!

      Fuck you, BBC.

    I am looking forward to this book also, has the potential to be a great read.
