David Jason says Only Fools and Horses’ Del Boy could be making a return, for what could be the final time.
Legendary character Derek Trotter could be reprising the role in time for a special event celebrating the classic television show Only Fools And Horse.
According to the Daily Star, fans have claimed to have spotted David Jason in the iconic family flat at the run down Nelson Mandela House.
Del Boy will be making a return in February next year, with David declaring his excitement: “I am looking forward to having the opportunity to meet so many Only Fools fans. It’s going to be cushty.”
An insider stated: “This event will be a dream for fans.
“They will get to see Sir David back in the world of the Trotters. It will be a rare chance to see him in the flesh.
“There are no plans to bring back the series or do any more charity specials, so this event is a one-off chance for fans to see David back where he belongs.”
Of course, fans would love to see more but it looks like this may not happen now.
Nicholas Lyndhurst has said he thinks too many members of Only Fools And Horses have passed away for there to be any new episodes in the future.
Nicholas played Rodney Trotter in the BBC sitcom, and he added that it was sad that the most recent union with co-star David Jason was at a funeral.
Nicholas said: “We can’t do anymore. John was the driving force.
“We’ve also lost quite a few of the cast members now, so I don’t think I could do it – I certainly couldn’t do it without John.”
Both Roger Lloyd-Pack, who played Trigger, and Roy Heather, who was the cafe owner Sid, passed away in 2014.
This came after the death of the show’s writer, John Sullivan, in 2011.
Lennard Pearce, who played Grandad, passed away in 1984 and Buster Merryfield (Uncle Albert) died over 20 years ago.
Publican Mike, who was played by Kenneth MacDonald, died in 2001.
The comedy show was originally aired from 1981 to 1991, and until 2003 there was the occasional Christmas special.
