ONLY Fools and Horses star Sir David Jason has told of his regret at drifting apart from co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst.
He told the Radio Times: “He’s much more, how can I say, self-contained, perhaps, than he used to be. So, unfortunately, we don’t see each other as much as I would like to. But that’s how things work out sometimes.”
Talking of how close the Only Fools and Horses cast were Sir David added: “I miss it terribly. It wasn’t like going to work; it was going to have fun with your mates. We loved each other.”
Lyndhurst has previously told how he finds it hard to watch Only Fools and Horses re-runs following the deaths of co-stars including Roger Lloyd-Pack, who played Trigger.
He said: “I don’t want to see friends who are no longer with us on screen.
“We used to surprise them on their birthdays . . . wind them up. We used to tease each other. It was a family.”
