Only Fools viewers 'would call Del Boy a pervert in 2018'

He is one of the greatest comedy characters in British TV, the hapless wheeler dealer loved for his get-rich-quick schemes, Cockney catchphrases and dodgy French.
But a former Only Fools And Horses star has said viewers in 2018 would probably not see the funny side of Del Boy if he came new to our TV screens today.
Sue Holderness, who played Boycie's flirtatious wife Marlene in the 1980s sitcom - which starred Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as Derek and Rodney Trotter - says political correctness has gone too far and people now would be calling for Del to be locked up."The very first episode, Del gave me a big hug, kissed me fondly and pinched my arse and nobody took any offence at it, except Boycie who looked daggers," she said."And every time we met that would happen. It's quite fun."

Holderness said she feels sorry for men nowadays "because I don't know how you cope"."I don't think you would get away with Del Boy pinching Marlene's bottom without everybody saying, 'He's a pervert and that shouldn't be allowed and he should be locked-up.'"The 69-year-old said that while she supports movements such as #MeToo, men now "don't know how to behave" because "almost anything can be deemed inappropriate".
