His character was so popular that he portrayed him once more, for the four series of spin-off show The Green Green Grass, alongside on-screen wife Marlene, played by Sue Holderness.

“Marlene without Boycie – it’s unthinkable,” she said.

“John Challis was my partner on screen and stage for 36 years and my beloved friend. RIP darling John. I will miss you every day.”
