David Jason: Last News


Only Fools and Horses legend reveals he’s had lifesaving cancer operation – and has one last wish for the sitcom

ONLY Fools and Horses favourite Patrick Murray says his recent cancer op saved his life – and one of his greatest wishes now is to revive the sitcom with co-star Sir David Jason. The actor, who played Mickey Pearce in the BBC1 classic, thanked Professor Nigel Heaton — the surgeon of footballer George Best — for removing half his liver, which contained a tumour. He now hopes he’ll be declared cancer-free at his next scan, leaving him clear to work with Sir David, who last year said he would be up for playing Del Boy one last time.
