He is insists that the writer would need to be every bit as good as John Sullivan, who died in 2011.

Speaking to the Mirror, the Sir David said: “That would be good, wouldn’t it?

“We haven’t got a writer, if we had a good writer like the lovely John Sullivan, we would, I tell you.

“But my partner Nick (Lyndhurst) has gone on to other things, so you are stuck with Open All Hours.”

Sir David has been starring in the reboot of the classic Open All Hours, which is now in its third series.
