John Challis, a British actor, best known as Aubrey "Boycie" Boyce in the 'Only Fools and Horses', considered by many as one of the funniest TV shows ever written, that ran from 1981 to 2003, applied for Serbia's citizenship, Belgrade Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic said on Wednesday.

Challis has recently published a photo of his Mercedes with ‘Srbia’ written on the licence plates.

Vesic wrote on his Facebook profile the photo was made outside Serbia’s embassy in London when the actor, 79, applied for citizenship.

The Deputy Mayor expressed gratitude to Lazar Vukovic, a Serb brought up and lived in London, for introducing Challis to Belgrade and Serbia and his falling in love with the city and the country.
