There are many strings to David Beckham’s bow. A long and illustrious career in football is one of them, as he uses his sporting nous to potentially create an empire over in Miami.

Only Fools And Horses Sir David Jason Nicholas Lyndhurst

Christmas is the season of TV specials and on screen treats, and before we've even seen 25th December this year, it already looks like we know what to look forward to seeing on the box next year and we might not even have to wait until Christmas for the TV treat!

Will the Trotter's iconic Reliant Robin be back too?

You may have thought it ended for good almost a decade ago, but it looks as though Del Boy and Rodney could be on their way back to our screens once again.

Lavely jubbly!

You Plonkers! Bridget Jones Book Printed With 40 Pages Of David Jason's Memoirs


Helen Fielding Sir David Jason

Helen Fielding fans who snapped up the latest instalment of the Bridget Jones series Mad About The Boy were treated to a rather strange narrative change this week. Instead of reading about the trials and tribulations of Britain's favorite singleton, they instead found 40-pages of David Jason's new autobiography, My Life.

A spokeswoman for publishers Vintage made light of the situation, saying: "The printers have had a Bridget moment..a printing error has been detected in some of the very early copies of Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy.

"Copies printed on one day have given readers an accidental preview of David Jason's autobiography.

Helen Fielding Sir David Jason

Helen Fielding's final edition to her Bridget Jones trilogy 'Mad About The Boy' has caused quite a stir this week by the addition of an unexpected new character: David Jason.

In what is probably one of the biggest printing blunders of recent years, the long-awaited arrival of the final novel documenting the life of ungainly and exceptionally ordinary serial singleton Bridget Jones has been met with utter shock as the earliest copies are revealed to contain a portion of 'Only Fools and Horses' star David Jason's autobiography 'My Life' within its pages.

David Jason's Autobiography To Be Released In 2014


Sir David Jason

David Jason will be marking 50 years in showbiz by publishing his autobiography. BBC News have reported that the Only Fools and Horses actor will be publishing his memoirs via Random House in the autumn of 2014. Jason said that writing the book would allow him to "share the journey" of his life with the British public.

"Over the past 50 years I have had the fortunate experience of working with some of the finest actors and writers in the world," he told the press. "This book will be an opportunity for me to share the journey through my life and career with the people who have been most generous with their support and kindness - the great British public." Jason has, for a long time, been an actor that the British public have been incredibly fond of - from his days as the hapless Del Boy in Only Fools and Horses, to his performance as Detective Inspector Jack Frost in the more serious crime drama A Touch of Frost - a role that began in 1992 and lasted for 16 years.

David Jason was born in 1940 and began his TV career in 1964, playing Bert Bradshaw in Crossroads. He went on to perform alongside the Monty Python comedians in Do Not Adjust Your Set. In 1993 he was awarded an OBE and in 2005 he received a knighthood - both for services to drama.
