    David Jason is being haunted by the ghost of John Sullivan – who keeps moving a giant painting in his garage.

    The Del Boy actor, inset, was gifted the portrait of the late Only Fools And Horses creator at a charity dinner.

    Sir David, 82, ended up hanging the painting in his garage beside a picture of his former Open All Hours co-star Ronnie Barker.

    But he soon noticed some spooky goings-on.

    He said: “Of the two of them, Ronnie is the more stable. By which I mean his picture never budges. John, on the other hand, can’t seem to stop fidgeting.

    “Every week or so, I’ll look at that painting and find it’s not hanging straight and I’ll have to put him right.

    “A week later, despite my best efforts, he’ll have shifted again.

    “It’s like he’s constantly giving me a gentle reminder as I go about my business: ‘Excuse me, don’t forget where this success of yours came from.

    “And I haven’t. And I won’t.”

    The TV icon also admitted that he isn't a fan of the show's iconic yellow van – despite so many viewers loving the canary yellow Reliant Regal.

    Talking about the vehicle on BBC Breakfast, Jason said: "The Reliant we had to drive in Only Fools was hell on three wheels.

    "It was probably the most uncomfortable, noisy, smelly car ever. It had a crashed gearbox and the seats were all ripped but we had an affection for it.

    “It was a genius idea by the writer John Sullivan to get the Trotters driving around in a cheap little vehicle, but I wouldn’t drive one now if you paid me.”
