We don't remember this storyline in Only Fools & Horses

David Jason, best known for his roles as Del Boy and Inspector Frost, has discovered a 52-year-old daughter he never knew he had.

And with that, he's discovered he has a 10-year-old grandson!

Speaking to The Mirror, the 83-year-old actor said "To say it was a surprise is an understatement".

"However, on settling with the news, I am delighted that I am now able to get to know Abi and so we meet up when we can."

He said that once his wife and daughter got over the shocking news, they welcomed the pair into their family with open arms.

"My wife, Gill, and daughter Sophie, have been very supportive and understanding and have embraced Abi and welcomed her and her young son into her now wider family."

Jason and Abi were united when Abi started speculate that the TV star could be her father. She knew her mother had a brief relationship with David in the 70s and felt they shared a few similar characteristics. She wrote to him to explain and ask if he'd be up for a paternity test. And well, the rest is history!

Speaking on the news, Abi herself said she felt "incredibly proud" but also "completely overwhelmed with sorrow for the years we have lost."
