Ice T has paid tribute to John Challis with a heartwarming post remembering his “internet friend”. Challis – best known for his role as Boycie in Only Fools and Horses – died on Sunday (19 September) aged 79. The actor’s family revealed that he “died peacefully in his sleep after a long battle with cancer”.
One unexpected star to remember the late actor was American rapper Ice T, who had become “Twitter friends” with Challis over the years.
As reported by Metro, Challis regularly wished Ice T and his family a Merry Christmas on social media.
Earlier this month, the actor had also tweeted that he hoped to meet Ice T in New York next year.
