The Open All Hours star 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.”

Despite Only Fools and Horses ending almost two decades ago, it remains one of the most popular sitcoms in the UK. It was also made into a West End musical which ended in April 2023 after four years and 1,000 performances.

Sir David plays Del Boy Trotter in the BBC comedy sitcom follows two brothers who buy and sell almost anything, including dodgy goods, believing that they will someday get rich doing so.
