‘We’ve come to persuade you back to work.....’

That's right! Almost 30 years since Series 2 was filmed the team have tracked down the legendary ‘Ying Tong John’ AKA 'Big Baz'! We hit the road with Baz earlier in the month and visited several filming locations including Ally Fraser’s ‘Scanda Sauna’ and ‘Thornely Manor’, Derby's rest home for retired gentlefolk!   This exclusive interview sees larger than life Big Baz talking about rehearsals, make-up, his time on set, the ‘big fight’, Gary Holton, Pat Roach and of course that infamous ‘elastoplast’ deleted scene that sadly ended up on the cutting room floor!   Join Tim, Baz and the team on a fantastic road trip across Nottingham as we reminisce down memory lane! Lee, Tim and Andy would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to John on behalf of fans for taking the time to share his stories for which we greatly appreciate.   PLEASE NOTE: The team secured special permissions to visit all locations featured in this video. We politely request that fans do not visit private residences and places of work unannounced, without the owner’s prior consent and to ensure their privacy is fully respected. © The images, video & text are copyright Tim Wagstaff, ITV Studios & awpet.com and are not to be used or copied without permission.
