Only Fools and Horses quiz with 15 questions on Del Boy that even a plonker could get right

Test your knowledge on TV's most popular hooky gear dealer, "he who dares..."

Derek ‘Del Boy’ Totter is a cockney businessman from Peckham with a really bad knowledge of the French language. As head of the Trotter family in Only Fools and Horses, he’s fully committed to providing for his loved ones but also a real sucker for making money in the most stupid of ways.

“This time next year we’ll be millionaires”, was his mantra, and full credit to the fella as he did make a fortune, before losing the lot when the stock markets crashed, leaving him skint in Monaco.

But despite his losses the market trader loves to dream, take care of all his family, banter over a pint in The Nag’s Head, and tell lies, or ‘porky pies’ in Del’s language. He’s always got some hooky gear to sell from out of a suitcase or from the back of his bright yellow Reliant Regal, and we love him for it.
