'Only Fools And Horses' Returning For Sport Relief

Posted: Updated:

'Only Fools And Horses' is set to trot back onto screens for the first time in over a decade, the BBC have confirmed.

The familiar faces of cockney wheeler dealers Del Boy and Rodney Trotter will return as part of a one-off charity special for Sport Relief in March, the broadcaster revealed.

Details of the plot or nature of the programme have not been revealed, but a BBC spokesperson said " a short sketch" is being produced.

"There are plans afoot for a short 'Only Fools and Horses' sketch for Sport Relief," they said.

"Further details will be announced in the build up the appeal night on March 21".

The show stars David Jason as wheeler dealer Del Boy and his bumbling younger brother Rodney - Nicholas Lyndhurst.

Created by John Sullivan - who died aged 64 in 2011 - the show became the most successful British comedy made since first airing in 1981.

It ran as a regular show until 1991 and has since reappeared in sporadic Christmas specials - the last of which was in 2003.

Despite not being an instant hit, the show went on to smash records with 24.3 million viewers for an episode in 1996.
