Del Boy and Rodney to appear in short sketch in March, 10 years after the last episode of the classic comedy.

For over 20 years the ducking and diving of the Trotter family in Only Fools and Horses, led by David Jason’s Del Boy, was the most popular show on TV.

The BBC sitcom ran for seven series between 1981 and 1991, while a number of Christmas special followed in subsequent years, with the final one broadcast in 2003.

But there is good news for fans of the show today from the BBC. On the Sport Relief charity night on March 21, a short Only Fools and Horses sketch, starring Rodney and Del Boy, will feature.

A BBC spokeswoman said: “There are plans afoot for a short Only Fools and Horses sketch for Sport Relief.

“Further details will be announced in the build up to the appeal night on March 21.”

The man who wrote the show, John Sullivan, died in 2011, so who will be putting the script together is unclear at this stage.

Fingers crossed we get at least a few moments as funny as this…
