David Jason opens up on relationship with co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst amid feud rumours

David Jason opens up on relationship with co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst amid feud rumours

There have been claims the on-screen brothers clashed on the set of Only Fools and Horses

Sir David Jason has opened up on his relationship with Only Fools and Horses co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst amid rumours the pair feuded while filming the show.

Of course, Jason's Del Boy wouldn’t have been complete without brother Rodney Trotter, played by Lyndhurst.

However, there have previously been claims the two actors clashed during their time on the comedy.

BBC’s Only Fools and Horses is an absolute staple of British telly and ran from 1981 until 2003, with Jason and Lyndhurst the stars right until the end.

In case you don’t know about this total classic, it was essentially about the two brothers in south London, buying and selling everything and anything in hopes to fulfil their dream of becoming mega rich.

And Jason - who still makes an incredible amount of money from Only Fools 20 years after the final episode - has now responded to rumours he fell out with Lyndhurst.

Rubbishing the feud rumours, he told the Mirror: “You couldn’t have had a better co-partner than Nic. We liked and respected each other so much, we were genuinely good friends.”

And if you are a big fan of the BBC show, you'll be in for a treat tomorrow (24 December).

A special festive documentary called The Story of Only Fools and Horses at Christmas will see Jason joined by his on-screen girlfriend Tessa Peake-Jones.

As well as Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis and Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy appearing, Del Boy himself will be looking back on the many iconic festive episodes.

It’ll be a whole 90 minutes of looking back on the show’s Christmas history.

Only Fools and Horses ended for good 20 years ago, wrapping things up with 2003 Christmas special 'Sleepless in Peckham'.

Since then, all we've had of the Trotters is a Comic Relief special nine years ago featuring David Beckham.

Sadly, it's unlikely we'll get a proper reunion on the show, as according to Metro, Lyndhurst has said they 'can't' due to the death of screenwriter John Sullivan and a number of classic cast members.

Lyndhurst said he 'certainly couldn't do it without John', so this look back at their Christmas specials is the best you're going to get.

"It wouldn’t be Christmas without the Trotters, so this is a great way for viewers to get their Only Fools fix," an insider told The Sun.

“Producers were delighted when David was passed fit to appear following his surgery, so the special will be cushty for fans."
