"If it's a girl they're calling her Sigourney after an actress," he said of Del Boy's child-to-be. "And if it's a boy they're naming him Rodney, after Dave."

a classic actor who'll be missed a lot

RIP Roger

Tributes are flowing in for the actor Roger Lloyd Pack - best known as Trigger the dopey road-sweeper in Only Fools And Horses - who has died aged 69.

 

Actor Sir David Jason has led tributes for actor Roger Lloyd Pack - best known as Trigger in Only Fools And Horses - who has died aged 69. Sir David, who played Del Boy in the popular TV sitcom, told of his "fondness" for his sitcom co-star and described him as a fine actor. "I was very saddened to hear of Roger's passing. He was a very quiet, kind and unassuming actor who was a pleasure to work with," the actor said.

 

"Although he played the simple soul of Trigger in Only Fools And Horses, he was a very intelligent man and a very fine actor capable of many roles. I shall remember him with fondness and for all the good times we had together."

 

Actor John Challis, who played Boycie in the much-loved series, said: "I spoke to Roger two days ago. "It is very sad and very distressing. "My thoughts are with his family. He was a remarkable man and he'll be missed. Roger is irreplaceable. It's a very sorry day."

 

Graham Linehan, creator of the sitcoms Father Ted and The IT Crowd, wrote: "Very sad news about Roger Lloyd Pack. "Trigger was an ancestor to Father Dougal and I'm glad I once had a chance to tell him so."

 

James Corden, best known for Gavin And Stacey and the game show A League Of Their Own, tweeted: "So sad to hear about the passing on Roger Lloyd Pack. "What an incredible actor and person. May he rest in peace."

 

Shane Allen, the BBC's controller of comedy commissioning, said: "The nation bids a fond and sad farewell to one of the most popular television sitcom actors of his generation.

 

Tottenham Hotspur tweeted: "We're saddened to learn of the death of Spurs fan Roger Lloyd-Pack. The Club extends our condolences to his friends and family."

Trigger - "This old broom has had 17 new heads, and 14 new handles in its time"

Sid - "How the hell can it be the same bloody broom, then?!"

Trigger - "Well here's a picture of it, what more proof d'ya need?!"

^ That "mind your head" sign scene is a Trigger favourite of mine!

Sad to hear of Roger's death.

For me its the one where the chandelier falls down followed very closely yuppie love the reason why I picked that one over yuppie love is they had one take at it if one of them (Del or Rodney) started to laugh the whole episode was gone and money was lost of the chandelier

Stars attend Roger Lloyd Pack funeral

 

Only Fools and Horses stars Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst have joined mourners at Roger Lloyd Pack's funeral in central London. The actor, best known for his role as slow-witted Trigger in the long-running BBC sitcom, died last month aged 69. John Challis, who played car dealer Boycie, and his on-screen wife Sue Holderness, also attended the service at St Paul's, Covent Garden. His daughter, actress Emily Lloyd, led the service on Thursday. Nigel Havers, Stephen Rea, Miranda Richardson, Alison Steadman, Kathy Burke and Joely Richardson were among the many stars to pay tribute to an actor whose career spanned more than 40 years. St Paul's is also known as the Actor's Church for its long association with the theatre world.

 

The only actor - apart from Lyndhurst and Jason - to appear in both the first and last episode of the much-loved sitcom, Lloyd Pack won a whole new generation of fans with his role as Owen Newitt in the Vicar of Dibley. In recent years he was seen at the Shakespeare's Globe, appearing alongside Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry in its production of Richard III and Twelfth Night. A committed socialist, he campaigned for nuclear disarmament and was a supporter of Left Unity, a recently formed "radical political party of the left". Lloyd Pack, who had pancreatic cancer, died on 15 January.

    Sunshine in western and central areas to end the weekend, but still cloudier and windier further east. Monday brings a reversal in fortunes though with eastern parts seeing the best of any sunny weather. Read the full update here
