Series 5, Episode 6 - Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

Del is offered a business opportunity that he finds difficult to turn down. To accept would mean emigrating to Australia and leaving the family behind. What should he do?

Further details

Del's old business partner from the 1960s, Jumbo Mills, returns to the UK shores to strike a deal with Boycie, and ends up rubbing everyone up the wrong way in The Nag's Head.

Jumbo has made himself rich Down Under, after leaving rainy London for Australia with Del Boy's last £200. In an attempt to pay back this debt 'with interest', Jumbo asks Del to become the face of his new import business - but it means a move to Australia for the Trotter family.

After making sure Rodney and Albert have a place in Oz, Del Boy agrees to join Jumbo's firm, but things don't go as smoothly as hoped. Tired of wandering the globe, Albert decides he wants to end his days in Peckham, and it looks like Rodney's criminal record has put paid to his dream trip.

Regardless of this, Del still seems keen to go, but when he picks up the phone to confirm the plan to Jumbo, he politely turns him down - reluctantly admitting that blood is thicker than water.
