British veteran actor Roger Lloyd-Pack, will be cut from the reunion of the legendary sitcom Only Fools and Horses. According to reports, the comedian will have to be cut from the first reunion in 10 years since he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in February.

Son of the show’s late creator John Sullivan, Jim Sullivan, revealed the script had to be re-written, telling Radio Times, “We were all shocked and saddened at the news of Roger Lloyd-Pack’s death. We had originally written Trigger into the sketch and Roger was supportive of the whole thing. We had heard that he had been unwell, but had no idea how serious it was. It wasn’t until shortly before filming that we heard he was too poorly to perform, such was his eagerness to be involved – a true testament to his character.”

Sullivan adds, “It’s… good to be able to set the record straight about some of the rumors… that we’re writing a new series etc. None of it is true. It really is just a one-off sketch… There was only ever one writer of Only Fools and Horses, and without him, there can be no more.”
