David Jason

Derek Trotter, or Del Boy, is a loveable Cockney rogue and wheeler dealer. He spent the 1980s and early 1990s slaving away in the Peckham badlands with his market stall creaking under the weight of dodgy gear.

However his luck changed in 1996 when an antique watch hidden in his garage made him an overnight millionaire. He lived the high life for 5 years before losing it all in 2001 due to a stock market crash.


Before they were famous
David Jason has been famous for a very long time - first lodging himself in public consciousness in Open All Hours as Granville in 1973. Prior to this big break Jason performed on stage in the West End before gaining a place on the Monty Python precursor Do Not Adjust Your Set.

Famous Quote
Lovely Jubbly
Rodney, you plonker
This time next year we'll be millionaires!
And all manner of Cockney rhyming slang.

Where are they now?
Jason can't have slipped off anyone's radar unless they've been living under a rock. Every year it seems he wins a most loved TV icon award somewhere. Recent credits include playing Inspector Frost in A Touch of Frost, and taking the starring role in Micawber. He also, no doubt, contributed to the phenomenal success of The Darling Buds of May (leaving aside Catherine Zeta Jones's obvious charms).
