Roger Lloyd-Pack - Brought joy to generations as Only Fools and Horses' Trigger

Only Fools and Horses star Roger Lloyd-Pack has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 69.

The actor, best known for playing Trigger in the long-running comedy, died in London on Wednesday night.

His agent, Maureen Vincent, said he had "died at home surrounded by his family".

Roger Lloyd-Pack's other screen credits included The Vicar of Dibley, The Borgias, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and The Old Guys.

While also a successful stage actor, Lloyd-Pack knew he would always be best known as Only Fools and Horses' Trigger.

He told The Guardian in 2012: "People will never stop shouting "Trigger!" at me in the street. The other day I jumped some lights on my bike because someone was hollering at me. A police van pulled me over, and when I stopped they also shouted: "Trigger!". It can be very annoying."

Paying tribute, Father Ted co-creator Graham Linehan wrote online: "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."
