Ian McShane missed being Lovejoy
So decided to become a real-life antiques dealer.
Much like his character, he was
“A bit of a rogue” in the antiques world.
Unfortunately, unlike his character,
He wasn’t a “likeable” rogue
And would regularly intimidate
Little old folk at car boot sales with his fists
To take their ornaments
And VHS box sets of Friends
For next to nothing.
