Fools' gold

Del Boy gets his own museum

A fan of Only Fools And Horses is opening a museum dedicated to the BBC sitcom.

Peter Aghajanoff has spent 15 years collecting exhibits including Del Boy's Robin Reliant, Rodney's Army jacket and a yellow double decker bus that hosted Trotter’s Ethnic Tour.

And the museum in Bressingham, Norfolk, even features a full-size Trotter living room from Nelson Mandela House, complete with bar.

It took five years planning to get the museum going, and it will finally be opened on Sunday by Roger Lloyd-Pack, who played Trigger.

Basildon man Peter, 42, said: ‘As Del Boy might say, ‘It'll be the creme de menthe”.’

It will be the second sitcom museum for the small town. Bressingham already boasts a centre dedicated to Dad’s Army.
