'Only Fools and Horses' Returns, with David Beckham

Subscribe to David Beckham alerts

Only Fools on Horses, David Beckham? Not two things you'd traditionally put together, but both British institutions formed a comedic alliance to shoot a special sketch for BBC One's Sport Relief. The scene - filmed this week - sees the English sports star head to Peckham to meet up with Del Boy and Rodney - Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst - in a local greasy spoon.

The actors last played the wheeler-dealer Trotter brothers in a Christmas special in 2003. The new sketch will be broadcast on March 21 as part of the Sport Relief weekend.

Only Fools and Horses is often considered Britain's finest sitcom and the 1996 Christmas special - in which Del Boy finally came good on his promise to become a millionaire - was watched by more than 24 million people.

Beckham has taken part in various comedy sketches for charity over the years, including sharing a bath with actor James Corden in 2012. 

This year's Sport Relief television footage comes live from the Olympic Park with presenters including Gary Lineker, Gaby Logan, Clare Balding and comedian Jack Whitehall. Celebrity funders include Davina McCall who will cycle, run and swim her way from London to Edinburgh, while Little Mix are recording this year's Sport Relief single - a cover of Cameo's Word Up.

A star-studded version of The Great British Bake Off will see Victoria Pendleton, singer Michael Ball and actress Samantha Bond come up against the fierce criticism of Paul Hollywood. 

News of the Only Fools and Horses reunion comes just days after Roger Lloyd-Pack - who famously played the dim-witted 'Trigger' on the show - passed away after a battle with cancer.
