Only Fools and Horses saw Del Boy (played by Sir David Jason) and Rodney Trotter (Nicholas Lyndhurst) as brothers. Their hilarious antics as the much-loved comedy duo kept the series going for more than 20 years. Since David Jason admitted the pair no longer talk, what are they doing now?
Where are David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst now?
Despite the fact the pair were close during the filming of the sitcom, they have drifted apart over the years.
Sir David admitted he misses his old friend terribly as they had loved one another back in the day.
The series first aired in 1981 and it ran for more than two decades.
Yet since the one-off charity special was filmed in 2014, the couple lost contact.
David, 82, said: “He’s much more, how can I say, self-contained, perhaps, than he used to be.”
“So, unfortunately, we don’t see each other as much as I’d like to. But that’s how things work out sometimes,” he told The Mirror.
Nicholas lost his 20-year-old son Archie following a brain haemorrhage caused by acute lymphoblastic leukaemia back in 2020.
Since then he has kept out of the spotlight as he dedicates his time to the rest of his family.
David has not done much TV work since 2021 when he appeared made a surprise cameo appearance on the Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing in the role of Del Boy to pass on a special message to The Repair Shop’s Jay Blades.
He also narrated The Lancaster Bomber at 80 with David Jason, celebrating the history of the iconic Second World War aircraft.
He still takes part in some TV interviews and spoke out after his experience with Covid on This Morning.
He said: “I got it seriously bad. Because all the muscles weren’t working, I collapsed and fell against the radiator.
“I was so weak, I couldn’t get up.” He would often struggle to get in and out of bed by himself.
He recently released a book called The Twelve Dels Of Christmas.
As for Nicholas, the 61-year-old requested privacy following the death of his son.
One of his latest TV roles was in 2019, in the series So Awkward.

He was awarded for his outstanding work on Only Fools and Horses, along with David.
He told Red Carpet News: “We were fortunate enough to have John Sullivan as our writer.
“That’s the bottom line. It’s fortunate that David and I managed to work together, we had a very similar work ethic.
“And ethos that we wanted to do our best as quickly as possible, you didn’t have very long to record an episode.
“We were doing 50-minute shows every six days at one stage so we didn’t have much time to rehearse it.
“We had to have each other’s back.” He went on to say how he had taken on a West End role in Carousel in 2017.
Sir David said he still takes on his Del Boy persona when he meets fans of the show.
He joked: “I do morph into Del sometimes to make people laugh. I enjoy it.
“I realise it’s a pretty low shot but it makes life easier for me on occasion. When I meet people sometimes, they’re a bit stiff and awkward to get on with.”
