They then had a litter of six puppies, which he named Rodney, Cassandra, Boycie, Marlene, Denzil and Nervous Nerys — after the barmaid Rodney tried to woo by restyling himself as a “bad boy”.

The dad of three keeps memorabilia from the classic BBC comedy, in which David Jason played Del, and Tessa Peake-Jones his long-term partner Raquel.

Danny, above as Del, and his teaching assistant girlfriend Leonie Mairs, 38, agreed on the pups names after their Raquel gave birth on December 29.

He said: “The sixth pup was unresponsive at first and took about ten minutes to come round, so we decided to call her Nervous Nerys.”

Full-time carer Danny, of Northampton, plans to breed the pups when they are old enough.

He said: “They’ll be able to have babies and they will have Only Fools names too.”
