The stars of Only Fools and Horses have paid tribute to their late friend and colleague Roger Lloyd-Pack, who passed away on Wednesday after a battle with cancer.

David Jason, who played Del Boy, said: "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."

Jason continued: "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."

Nicholas Lyndhurst, who played Rodney, said: "I'm so saddened to hear about Roger. He was the most accomplished actor and loved by millions, I will miss him greatly."

John Challis, who played Boycie, said: "I spoke to Roger two days ago. Roger said it was a bit awkward to talk at that particular moment. 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."
