Steve Rooney looks like the genuine article. But, like most things in sitcom Only Fools and Horses, he is a fake. Steve’s uncanny resemblance to David Jason has led to a career as a professional Del Boy lookalike. Lovely Jubbly are the famous words of Del Boy but if Steve Rooney was to walk in the room and say those words you would be mistaken for thinking you had just stepped back in time and come face to face with a television legend Del Boy. Steve has been impersonating Del for many years now and has an act second to none that has to be witnessed.
Steve was lucky enough to attend the show’s fan club annual convention with Uncle Albert lookalike & many other lookalike characters to complete the line up. Steve said: "John Challis, who plays Boycie said he was the best Del Boy he had seen since the real one.''
It all started when Steve was working as a gardener, entered a Lookalike competition & won!! Since then he has being inundated with requests to appear as Del Boy, with his first booking making an appearance as Del Boy at Richard Branson’s pre-millennium party, which was attended by 90,000 people. Since then he has appeared at hundreds of parties, and charity and business events, and has even turned up at the weddings of the show’s biggest fans. He also had the pleasure of appearing as a double for one of David Jason’s other alter-egos – Jack Frost – on Harry Hill’s TV Burp.
Steve also owns an Only Fool & Horses inspired Yellow Robin Reliant car which can be booked for an extra fee where he can arrive in typical Del Boy style. A perfect addition for any event, a prop for selfies or even a method of transport for your groom to be!
Perfect choice if you are looking for something a little different, guaranteed to turn heads. Fabulous choice for meet & greet, mix & mingle with guests or a perfect icebreaker.
