Profile

Jumbo Mills is Del Boy Trotter's ex-business partner and old good-natured school friend, appearing in the fifth series episode "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" as well as the prequel series Rock & Chips.

In his first chronological appearance, the first episode of Rock & Chips, Jumbo appeared as a teenager (with hair), in which he hung out with Del by helping him sell any hooky stock that was brought into the docks by Denzil's father. Jumbo also attended the very first Jolly Boys' Outing. The following episode, "Five Gold Rings", Jumbo would also help Del flog American LP's from Memphis, Tennessee until they were arrested by Roy Slater, who had just become a police cadet. But however, the charges against Del and Jumbo were dropped by Sgt. Foster much to Slater's chagrin. At the end of the third episode, "The Frog and the Pussycat", Del, Jumbo, and their friends managed to steal some lambrettas and speed off into the night towards Brighton.

As they approached their early twenties, Del and Jumbo would become business partners, as they ran a Jellied eels stall called Eels on Wheels outside The Nag's Head, which was put to an end by television, and the fact that Jumbo shortly emigrated in Australia with Del's last £200 in 1967. Nearly twenty years later, a now balding Jumbo returns to Peckham to persuade Del to move out to Australia with him and become business partners again by selling used cars. But when Albert refuses to go and Rodney is prevented from going because of his criminal record, Del turns down the offer from Jumbo.
