Series 1, Episode 4 - We Love Only Fools And Horses
We all love Only Fools And Horses, and in this celebrity-packed, 90-minute tribute featuring classic archive material, we meet the insiders to find out exactly why this sitcom is one of the most successful TV shows of all time.
Celebrity fans including Jonathan Ross, Theo Paphitis, John Thomson, Paul Whitehouse, Nina Wadia, Jamie Borthwick, and Martin and Shirlie Kemp talk about why they love the show as they reminisce about watching the Trotters' exploits, and how it affected their own lives and careers.
We also hear from the crew, and get firsthand insight into how such classic comedy moments were devised and executed - including the iconic chandelier scene, the bar fall, Batman and Robin and the watch auction, to name but a few.
Plus the story behind some of the show's famous catchphrases, and how the lead characters' outfits were chosen.
At the heart of the show was the relationship between its two leads, ably supported by Grandad and then Uncle Albert: we find out what made these actors and characters click from the people who were there and the people who loved to watch them. Complete with behind-the-scenes unguarded moments and some hilarious bloopers, this is a joyous celebration and nostalgic look back at arguably Britain's all-time favourite sitcom.
This episode is also sometimes billed as Only Fools And Horses: Britain's Favourite Sitcom.
