Here are a couple of clips from his some of his more memorable moments in Only Fools and Horses

Talking in 2011 of his schooldays a boarding school in Hampshire, Bedales School, Roger Lloyd-Pack said: "It was a complicated time for me. I found it difficult to adjust to living away home and I regularly suffered migraines.

“There were wonderful facilities at Bedales, and this is where my acting really began.

“As my father was an actor it did seem to be a natural progression for me. He was working class and changed his name from Charlie Pack to incorporate his Welsh mother’s name to sound more like the middle-class actors with double-barreled names.

“My drama teacher Rachel Carey-Field was inspirational. She was strict, professional and always honest. She made a big impact on me.

“In comparison to the freedom of boarding school, St David’s prep school was very strict and snobby.

“I have fond memories of playing in the streets in South Kensington. It was a rough area, not like it is now, with bike shops and greengrocers, no clothes shops. We could play by the river and muck about on the embankment, it was a great time.”
