Only Fools and Horses: Here’s what the actor who played yuppie Steven in The Jolly Boys’ Outing looks like now
The Jolly Boys’ Outing is undoubtedly one of the best, and most popular, Only Fools and Horses episodes…ever!

The Trotters were joined by Boycie, Trigger, Mike, Mickey Pearce, Alan Parry, Denzil, Jevon, Sid, and many more as they headed to the Kent coast on a beano to Margate.

But before they set off on their disastrous trip, Rodney and his wife Cassandra hosted a sophisticated dinner party with her parents, and her posh boss Steven and his wife Joanne – joined by Del Boy and Uncle Albert, of course!
Del Boy found successful banker Steven to be rather snobbish and couldn’t help but poke fun at him.
Steven also rubbed Rodney up the wrong way after referring to Cassandra as a ‘main lady in his life’, and seemed to get a bit too close for comfort.
As they chat around the dinner table, a conversation about Steven’s passion for playing baseball leads Del Boy to label him a ‘yuppie’.
Steven responds to Del and by firmly stating: “I am not a yuppie.”
Del cheekily replies: “You are Stephen, guaranteed!”, and continues “Take it from me son, you are!”
The night ends with a game of Trivial Pursuit, where a smug Steven asks Del Boy what a female swan is called.
