Sir David Jason made a flying visit to Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop this week, touching down in a helicopter. 

Jeremy’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop Instagram account shared two photos of him and Sir David, 82, standing in front of a helicopter on the property. 

The Only Fools and Horses star was seen wearing brown trousers and a gilet, a red jumper and a blue baseball cap as he held up a Diddly Squat tote bag full of goodies. 

In another shot, he and Jeremy, 62, appeared to be sharing a joke as they both appeared to be laughing with one another. 

Fans were over the moon to see the actor, who played wheeler-dealer Del Boy in the comedy, make a rare public appearance. 

They commented: ‘Nice one Del Boy!! Two legends!’ and ‘What a legend. In fact 2 legends in one picture.’

One joked: ‘Mange tout Jeremy,’ while another added: ‘That’s really something to cherish Jeremy. A flying visit from David. I just adore and admire him and his wonderful career.’

Sir David had recently shared a heartfelt message to his fans on his 82nd birthday in February, saying in a video message while being presented a cake: ‘How lovely!
