Memorabilia from one of the most popular British sitcoms of all time is up for auction in Bristol today.

Iconic props including Albert's war medals, Del Boy's signature signet ring and the £6.2 million Sotheby's cheque that brought the series full circle will all be sold to the highest bidder.

East Bristol Auctions in Hanham will present the pieces to the public this afternoon [June 7] .

Only Fools and Horses broadcast seven seasons over a decade between 1981 and 1991, winning various awards including three Baftas and a National Television Award for Best Comedy Series.

The Christmas trilogy in 1996 included both the legendary 'Batman and Robin' episode (the signed script for which will also be auctioned) and the moment Del Boy and Rodney became legitimate millionaires in 'Time on our Hands'.

All three episodes had record-breaking audiences with over 20 million viewers tuning in for each instalment.
