Trigger’s last laugh: Lloyd Pack’s final comedy role to be aired on Radio 4

The late Roger Lloyd Pack is to be heard in one of his final roles later this month, after being added to the cast of Radio 4 comedy series Gloomsbury.

The actor – who famously played Trigger in BBC1 sitcom Only Fools And Horses – died almost two months ago, after developing pancreatic cancer.

Mr Lloyd Pack’s involvement had not been announced until now.

He said of his involvement: “I’ve always been interested in the Bloomsbury set and I think it’s a rather brilliant idea to make fun of them as they lived in this extraordinary, slightly snobby bubble.”

The second series continues to follow the fortunes of Vera Sackcloth-Vest (Margolyes) – a writer, gardener and transvestite – in her amorous antics among her close-knit circle in the arty crowd.

She said: “The first series was met with hysteria and delight from everybody and I’m 100% thrilled to be back playing Vera amongst this extraordinary cast.

“Vera is great fun to play because she’s a fount of sexuality and desire and simply doesn’t care how much sex is involved.”

Mr Lloyd Pack, who was 69 when he died, was loved by millions for his role as amiable dimwit Trigger, and as Owen Newitt in The Vicar Of Dibley.

He fell in love with Norfolk and moved to a village close to Fakenham after working at nearby Melton Constable Hall on the film The Go Between in 1970.

He went on to support many local ventures including Sheringham Little Theatre and Creative Arts East, of which he was patron, and was a popular character in his local community.
