Alright Dave.

1. This is the hearse carrying the body of Roger Lloyd-Pack to his funeral today. The Only Fools and Horses actor died in January.

2. He is gone but not forgotten. On 8 February, what would have been Roger’s 70th birthday, his fans created Call Everyone Dave Day, in honour of a long-running gag from Only Fools and Horses.

3. And so #DaveDay was born.

10. Football teams were improved markedly too. Definitely worth putting a tenner on Dave to score first.

11. Not everyone got the joke.

13. Age is no barrier to getting involved.

14. You can play the “What’s your Only Fools and Horses Name?” game.


17. Farewell Roger and here’s to a successful Call Everyone Dave Day next year.
