Jack performed at the club on Saturday where posters promised: '1000 free Gail Platt masks, to make Jack feel at home', in reference to his on-screen mum, played by Helen Worth.

It comes after Only Fools and Horses fans slammed an upcoming convention for charging £375 per person to meet 'Del Boy' actor David Jason.

The actor, 79, is set to reprise his iconic role as wheeler dealer Del one last time at a three-day event celebrating the series and his career in February - but fans will have to shell out if they want to meet and have a photo with David, and get his autograph.

Organisers The Only Fools and Horses Appreciation Society's website revealed their Gold Package - which includes a photo in the Trotter Flat with Sir David and his autograph on an item of your choice - will set fans back £375.
