[size=150:12uqrb2x]Only Fools and Horses sketch to appear on Sport Relief

Del Boy and Rodney were last seen in 2003 Christmas special Sleepless in Peckham

Dodgy dealers Del Boy and Rodney Trotter are to return to British TV screens for the first time in more than 10 years, the BBC has confirmed.

The much-loved south Londoners, played by David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, will feature in "
a short Only Fools and Horses sketch"
for this year's Sport Relief in March, it said.

The show, which ran from 1981-2003, was regularly voted Britain's best sitcom.

It was created by writer John Sullivan, who died aged 64 in 2011.

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."


Seven series of the programme were made, between 1981-1991, which were followed by a number of Christmas specials.

The 1996 Christmas special Time On Our Hands, in which Del Boy came good on his ambition to turn the Peckham brothers into millionaires, was seen by more than 24 million people.

The new sketch will be the show's first outing since 2003 Christmas special, Sleepless in Peckham.

Sadly if its not written by John Sullivan it probably won't be worth watching. No-one can replace him, the man was a genius . . there aren't too many of them around .

Have to agree with BGBound, if its not written by the original author then I'm afraid it will seem like a wannabe.
