Paul Whitehouse will return to the cast of the smash hit West End show Only Fools and Horses The Musical next year, starring once again as the lovable Grandad from 9 January.
The critically acclaimed musical is also extending its run at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket for a further three months until 29 April.
Based on John Sullivan’s iconic and record-breaking television show – and featuring cherished material from the TV series – this home-grown West End musical spectacular is written by John’s son, Jim Sullivan, and Paul Whitehouse. The musical reacquaints fans with Britain’s most lovable rogues, to experience the classic comedy brought to life through 20 ingenious and hilarious songs.
Paul Whitehouse said: “I can’t wait to be back in Grandad’s armchair next year after a bit of a break – many thanks to Les Dennis who’s been keeping it warm for me! It’s incredible to still be playing to packed houses week in, week out and I’m thrilled that the show is extending the run yet again. Mange tout!”
Directed by Caroline Jay Ranger, the show has been seen by over 700,000 people since it opened in the West End.
Starring alongside Paul Whitehouse are Tom Bennett (Del Boy) and Ryan Hutton (Rodney).
