One of comedy’s most lovable losers, Del Boy may yet return to our screens – if David Jason has his way that is.

The actor has confirmed he would like the opportunity to reprise the role of the Only Fools and Horses wheeler dealer.

The actor, who became a household name in Ronnie Barker sitcom, Open all Hours, and is also much-loved as a dedicated detective in A Touch of Frost, told The Sun: “I’ve always loved Del Boy, who is such a wonderful loser.

“I would love to revisit him; I need someone to write me a script.”

And in the words of Derek himself, he who dares – wins.

Here’s hoping.
