Only Fools and Horses Peckham flat The Trotters' flat has been rebuilt to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Only Fools and Horses

TV channel Gold has built the replica set in a tower block in the south London area where wheeler-dealer Del and his clumsy brother lived.

The original headache-inducing carpet, curtains and chairs are all in place, as is Del’s bar.

John Challis, aka Boycie, visited the flat with on-screen wife Sue Holderness, who played Marlene.

‘It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since it all began,’ he said. ‘It’s the best sitcom there is. The show changed my life and being back in the Gold Nelson Mandela House is incredible.’

For anyone who fancies spending a night under Del Boy’s tiger-print satin sheets, this is your chance.

Visitors to can enter a draw for the chance to rent the flat for one night for £18.

The flat is available from Tuesday, August 23 until September 4.
