A star of the beloved BBC One sitcom Only Fools and Horses met fans of the series at an 'incredible' convention held in Buckinghamshire.

Sir David Jason, who played Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter in Only Fools and Horses throughout its 22 years on BBC One, visited Milton Keynes on Sunday, January 14, for a fan convention that one attendee described as an 'incredible experience'.

Chris McDonnell, who attended the convention at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Milton Keynes, said the day - which included photo opportunities and panel discussions by cast members - was made all the more meaningful by the possibility that it could be Sir David's last such appearance amid ongoing health issues.

The 83-year-old acting veteran postponed the convention, which was originally due to take place in October, after undergoing surgery for the fitting of a "bionic body part".

Chris described his experience on Sunday as "incredible" and also shared photos with Sue Holderness, 74, who played Marlene in the series, his "second-favourite character" who it had been "amazing" to meet. 

The convention, which was billed as 'A Moment with Sir David and Only Fools friends', was organised by the Only Fools and Horses Appreciation Society, and marks the group's third celebration of the iconic sitcom.

In a statement about the event's postponement, released back in August 2023, Sir David described it as "a privilege" and "such an enjoyable celebration" of the series, adding that he had decided to delay his visit to Bucks so that he could greet fans "with the smile on my face that I have always had".
