Sir David Jason issues incredible health update for first time since major surgery

Sir David Jason issues incredible health update for first time since major surgery

Only Fools and Horses actor Sir David Jason was forced to drop out of a public appearance earlier this year to undergo hip surgery.

Sir David Jason has provided an incredible health update for first time since undergoing major surgery.

Watch below:

Earlier this year, the Del Boy actor was forced to drop out of the Only Fools and Horses Convention in Milton Keynes - due to take place in October - in order to undergo hip surgery.

Jason told fans in August that he needed to have a 'bionic body part fitted' and that the event had been rescheduled to 13 January and 14 January, 2024.

He said in a statement: "I am so very sorry for the disappointment and all the inconvenience it may cause but we are having to change the date of the forthcoming Only Fools and Horses Convention.

"Unfortunately I have just been advised I need a new bionic body part fitted.

"I won’t tell you which part it is, or you will all want one! And don’t worry it’s not being supplied by Monkey Harris, it’ll be the pukka gear.”

Jason continued: "I really hope everyone will be able to make the new date and we can all have something cushty to look forward to!

“These events are such an enjoyable celebration for myself and the rest of the Only Fools cast, and it is such a privilege to meet so many of you, but I want to do it with the smile on my face I always have had."

Jason starred in Only Fools and Horses as Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter.

In a new and hilarious video posted on X (Twitter) on Sunday (5 November) by the Only Fools and Horses Appreciation Society, the 83-year-old proved that age is just a number and provided fans with a positive health update.

At the start of the clip, we witness the sad sight of Del Boy looking rather frail on crutches.

However, as the theme song from Rocky starts to play in the background, David then tosses the crutches aside to shows fans he's stronger than ever.

"A little video from Sir David Jason after his successful surgery," the Only Fools and Horses Appreciation Society wrote.

"Let’s send him some love."

Sir David looks fit and well in the hilarious clip.

Viewers were delighted, as one person commented: "Legend! Long live David Jason.

A second said: "Lovely jubbly, he can knock, knock, knock out now!"

Another added: "Recovering well what a legend!!"

"Delboy is becoming uncle Albert," someone else penned.

Fans will get to see the iconic actor next January, as the convention explained on its website: “Following on from our successful conventions over the past 3 years, Sir David Jason is returning once again in person to meet his fans, along with other star guests who have appeared on our screens as part of our beloved Only Fools & Horses.

“Following our recent announcement with the change of Convention date we are delighted to confirm we will be returning across the weekend of Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th January 2024 to Double Tree Milton Keynes – MK Dons DoubleTree by Hilton, Stadium Way West, Milton Keynes, MK1 1ST.”
