Have you ever wondered what TV’s best loved characters, the likes of Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses, Arthur Daley from Minder and Corrie’s Roy Cropper, would have paid to insure their famous cars?

The team at Adrian Flux have been crunching the numbers to see just how much these insurance quotes would cost for a number of the nation’s favourites. You might be surprised just how cheaply they managed to find the right level of cover for these famous cars.

Adrian Flux saves you time and money by comparing policies and prices from a wide panel of insurance companies.

You may have tried price comparison sites in the past but, as Del Boy might have said, you’d be a “plonker” not to try Adrian Flux for the best deal available.

Here’s how the quotes for some of TV’s most familiar characters and most famous cars went:

Roy Cropper from Coronation Street

Corrie cafe owner Roy Cropper would have to fork out less than £100 to cover his famous car, a classic 1963  “Woody” Morris Minor Traveller to drive over TV’s most famous cobblestone streets.

Inspector Morse

Inspector Morse meanwhile would have to shell out just £275 to insure his 102 mile an hour Jaguar Mark II and he would have full business use cover, that means responding to 999 calls.

Famous cars: Del’s three wheeler & Arthur Daly’s XJS

The quotes are a little higher for our more colourful soap characters. Del Boy could get the three wheeler covered for £585 fully comprehensive and Arthur Daley, another “businessman” who loved to duck and dive, could insure his Jaguar XJ6 for £825, even having ex-con Terry McCann as a named driver.

Alfie Moon from EastEnders

Over in Albert Square and EastEnders, the loveable pint pulling rogue Alfie Moon could insure his racey 2.8 injection Ford Capri for under £800. The quote comes with a £500 excess because of the risk of one of the Slaters vandalising the car, subject to story lines!
