Only Fools And Horses star Sue Holderness is reunited with former co-star Sir David Jason – 20 years after iconic BBC show came to an end
It’s not exactly the Only Fools And Horses reunion fans have been craving, but those still pining for the show have been given a small taste of what to expect should it ever happen.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, actress Sue Holderness – best known for her role as Marlene Boyce in the iconic show – shared a photo of herself alongside Sir David Jason, whose portrayal of cockney market trader Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter made him a household name.
The pair were seen posing for a photo some 20 years after the show came to an end following a hugely successful 22-year run on BBC1.
Captioning the shot, Holderness, 73, wrote: ‘So lovely to be with Sir DJ again.’
The pair were in attendance as Milton Keynes venue Double Tree By Hilton hosted the annual Only Fools And Horses convention over the weekend.
They were joined by former show producer Adrian Pegg and director Tony Dow, who filmed various episodes of the show between 1988 and 2003.

Holderness recently launched a national appeal to warn the general public about online scams after she was targeted by fraudsters who conned her out of hundreds of pounds.
The Only Fools And Horses star was tricked by scammers who hacked into her computer and convinced her to pay them to ‘fix’ her online security.
Holderness is now supporting a campaign, Take Five To Stop Fraud, which provides advice to help people protect themselves from financial fraud.
Appearing on Loose Women, she said: ‘I think its a very important message because every time you turn on the radio or the television, somebody is talking about the scam or the fraud that they have suffered, and it seems to be mostly over-65s.
‘I fall very well into that category as I’m over 70. And they target us because we’re nervous of the internet and I suppose because we’ve got pensions and savings and so we’re the perfect people to have a go at.’
‘I was just on my computer, doing emails or something, and suddenly there was this loud alarm rather like an ambulance siren, “Emergency, you are being hacked. Touch none of your devices, phone this number.” Which I did without a second thought.
‘I phoned the number and the noise is still going, it’s terribly frightening. And nothing I did would take the noise away and they say, “Alright I will take over your computer and sort this out”.’
Holderness realised something was wrong as soon as she hung up and she quickly contacted her bank for help.
She said: ‘As soon as I ended the call, I knew that I’d made a mistake and I rang my bank and I said, “This is what’s happened to me and please when this £680, whatever it was, comes in would you (help). I think I’ve been scammed.”
‘And they said of course you’ve been scammed. No question about it. He said the best thing you’ve done is contact us quickly, now contact action fraud.’
Giving advice to viewers, Holderness encouraged people not to feel ashamed or embarrassed they’ve been the victim of a scam.
She said: ‘If you think you’ve been scammed, don’t be embarrassed and think, ‘I am an idiot’, which is what we all think, ‘How stupid can I be?”,
‘They’re very sophisticated these criminals. You’re not being stupid. They’re just terribly clever. It is their job to study you, to research you and to con you.’
