The publishing house says that the latest book will follow the 80-year-old actor’s life from trainee electrician to one of Britain’s most loved actors, shining new light on characters such as Del Boy, DI Jack Drost and Granville. 

It will be his third autobiography, following 2013’s My Life and the 2017 follow-up Only Fools And Stories.

"In my first two books, I enjoyed sharing my life with the great British public, and I was overwhelmed by their support and kindness," Jason said.

"In my new book, A Del Of A Life, I am delighted to share with readers some of the hard-won lessons I’ve learned along the way - how to dream big, how to work hard, and how not to fall through the gap in the pub bar…"

David is best-known for playing wheeler-dealer market trader Derek "Del Boy" Trotter in sitcom Only Fools And Horses, as well as DI Jack Frost in crime drama A Touch Of Frost.

His other TV roles include Granville in Open All Hours and Pop Larkin in The Darling Buds Of May.
