Standing at a modest, but no less commanding, 5’3 inches, Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter is the living embodiment of the underdog made good. From humble beginnings as an unlicensed market trader, he went on to form Trotters Independent Trading Co and achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a millionaire.

The man behind groundbreaking business ventures such as Peckham Spring mineral water, the Inframax deep-healing handheld massager and the Trotter Crash Turban (case pending), his mind is a veritable cesspit of entrepreneurial know how.

Now semi-retired and an avid philanthropist, Derek lives in Peckham with his significant other Raquel.
