Archie followed in the footsteps of his dad as an actor and starred as Oliver Coulton on CBBC’s So Awkward.

“How unfair that you should go and leave us here without you.

“You were one of the funniest, most aspirational people I’ve ever met, but also the cringiest and most irritating, and that’s precisely why I love you.

“I pray that I will always remember the sound of your voice, your laugh, your smile. I’m so thankful that I have nothing but happy memories of us to look back on.”

Back in 2015, Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas said he had become a “different person” following the birth of his son.

He Told The Guardian: “I became a different person overnight when I had my son – terrified.

“You could call me a helicopter parent, but now Archie’s 14, I’m learning to back off. The biggest casualty was probably my career.

“I mean that in a wonderful way. I knew how to make a television programme, but didn’t know about fatherhood, so I took three years off.

“When I went back to work, I thought: it’s not fatherhood, is it?”
