Vaughan | 16:00 UK time, Tuesday, 16 September 2008

The nation's favoirote actor - well, he is, isn't he? - David Jason has announced that he's quitting his award-winning role of Det Insp Jack Frost in ITV's A Touch of Frost after 16 years, because the character is "a little long in the tooth".

He went on: "You wouldn't want me to play Frost in a wheelchair, would you?"

To which Ouch! says: "Hang on, David! What about Ironside?! If it was good enough for him, surely you could give it a go too?"

David Jason was unavailable for comment. Well, to be honest, we didn't call him.
