Only Fools And Horses stars Raquel and Cassandra reunited on TV for first time in 15 years


Lovely jubbly! Only Fools And Horses stars Tessa Peake-Jones and Gwyneth Strong, who played Raquel and Cassandra, reunited on TV for first time in 15 years as part of Loose Women's Retro Week!

The actress appeared together for the first time since the long-running sitcom ended in 2003.

Tessa played Raquel, the long-suffering girlfriend of Del Boy Trotter, played by David Jason, while Gwyneth was Cassandra who married Rodney, played by Nicholas Lyndhurst.

And while they shard some behind the scenes secrets about filming the classic comedy Gwyneth and Tessa also recalled Cassandra's heartbreaking miscarriage scene in the 1996 Christmas special.

'It was an amazing scene in that he wrote both a tragedy and a comedy,' said Gwyneth of writer John Sullivan. 'I remember when we talked about the miscarriage, I thought "How on earth will we do that?" But we had such a response from people who watched it.'

Tessa also spoke of her nerves filming her first scene on the show with David Jason.

'My very first day at Waterloo station with David holding flowers that were bigger than him,' she revealed. 'I was probably the only person in the country that had never watched Only Fools, I just did it because the script was so amazing. At that moment it was only meant to be a one-off episode, David came to the second audition because he wanted to see what the chemistry was like between us.'

One Foot In The Grave's Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie reunited: 'I wanted Victor Meldrew killed off!'


One Foot in the Grave’s Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie were reunited on TV for the first time in years and left the audience in stitches.

And Richard admitted he wanted his character Victor Meldrew killed off, while Annette teased the ending could be re-written for a return.

Speaking of the famously grumpy character as part of our Retro Week, Richard said: 'Yes. David [Renwick] came to see a play I was in and he said, "I’m thinking of killing Victor". I said, "Yeah, kill him".'

Annette, who played his wife Margaret, said: 'I didn’t want it ever to end but I could understand why it had to.'

Asked if it could be brought back as a musical or stage play, Richard said: 'Too much for us to be on a stage. But Victor’s dead…'
'I wouldn’t mind it all being a bad dream and he’s not dead,' Annette added.

After 10 years together on the show the pair joked they didn’t really keep in touch, with Richard saying: 'We don’t remember when we last met.'
'Basically, we didn’t keep in touch… he lived in North London and I lived in South. As far as he was concerned, I lived in the back of beyond,' Annette added.
Richard teased: 'Wimbledon – I mean, where’s Wimbledon?'

Of whether Richard is as moody as his character, Annette revealed: 'As people, I am much grumpier. I could leave him standing. I’m fierce.'

Spice Girls exclusive: Melanie Brown talks for the first time about the band reunion, world tour and Victoria Beckham!


Melanie Brown - aka Scary Spice - dished all the gossip on the Spice Girls reunion and new tour!

And the day after the big news broke that Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Mel B were reforming, our own Loose Spice revealed exactly what the girls had got up to.

'We all went round to Geri’s for a cup of tea and it was like, finally we can talk about it,' she said. 'It’s really exciting. When we’re together we don’t like anybody else around us. Whether it’s husbands, kids… we move them all into the other room, so it’s just us four together.'

'We do a little cuddle and a little ring-a-ring o’roses. We kind of cried a little bit too – a sign of relief, finally, we’re going to be doing it,' she added. 'Us five, we went through something so special together we are going to be bonded forever.'

'Even though Victoria’s not joining us on the tour, she still sends her well wishes and she will be coming along – hopefully, fingers crossed. But yeah, we’re all still there supporting each other still, 25 years later.'

Asked if Mel B would like them band to go on a world tour, she said: 'We are... The hopes are that we go everywhere else in the world, but right now it’s just the UK.'
