David Jason has himself some body guards. He was seen with the 2 security men whilst filming in Doncaster, Yorkshire

It has been reported that the 77 year old has received ‘credible threats’ and the BBC have taken action by giving him some security staff while working.

One fan posted a picture on twitter showing him with the ‘minders’:

He’s been filming scenes for Still Open All Hours and he looked glum while walking around the streets with a script in his hand.

According to The Sun, the actor is being walked to and from his car by security.

An insider told the publication: “Production and security have been told there has been talk of a real threat.

“No one is taking any chances.”

He’s been seen recently sporting a big bushy beard whilst filming for the popular comedy.

The insider added: “Security is extra tight compared to previous years and he has two suited guards who follow him everywhere.

“They even follow his car when he leaves the set.”

We’re glad they’re looking after the national icon!
