Only Fools and Horses The Musical will extend its West End run for the fourth time.

Based on the iconic sitcom of the same name, the musical began its run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in February 2019.

The show, led by Tom Bennett as Del Boy, Paul Whitehouse as Grandpa and Ryan Hutton as Rodney, has extended until the end of 27 June 2020. Tickets for the new booking period are on sale now.

Whitehouse said: "After a bit of a break from the show I was itching to return to the stage and it's a great feeling to be back in Grandad's armchair. After almost a year we're still playing to packed houses throughout the week at the Theatre Royal Haymarket!"

The music is written by Whitehouse and Jim Sullivan with additional music by John Sullivan and Chas Hodges. The show is directed and choreographed by Caroline Jay Ranger, with set and costume design by Liz Ascroft, musical supervision and arrangement by Stuart Morley, lighting by Richard G Jones, sound by Rory Madden and casting by David Grindrod.
