Mr Bean marks 25th anniversary with a tour of London

Rowan Atkinson celebrated the 25th anniversary of Mr Bean (opens in new tab) in his own inimitable style – with a tour around London landmarks.

The lovable buffoon, created by the 60-year-old actor and Richard Curtis, took a trip around the capital in his lime green Mini, complete with an armchair strapped on.
