David Jason claims he was mastermind behind bar scene

Fans of the popular comedy will never forget the iconic moment Del Boy - played by the 77-year-old star - fell through the bar while trying to "play it cool" in front of two stunning ladies in a swanky drinking hole and the legendary actor has admitted it was actually his idea to have the two girls in the shot because it would distract the audience and make the fall even more unexpected, dramatic and comical.

Speaking on This Morning on Thursday (07.12.17), David said: "We did it just once. We did it twice but we only used it once but the one that we used is the one that you see."
