But now, sources tell The Mirror that fan-favourite Bradley will be taking the reigns as the central character, who was always thinking up money-making schemes and introduced Britain to his one-word catchphrase “Perfick”.
An insider told the publication that Bradley would be perfect for the role.
“The original series, starring David Jason, Pam Ferris and Catherine Zeta-Jones, was an enormous hit so casting the remake has to be just right,” they said.
“Everyone thinks Bradley will do a brilliant job as Pop. He’s perfick.”
