Is 'Only Fools And Horses' Returning To TV In 2014?

Christmas is the season of TV specials and on screen treats, and before we've even seen 25th December this year, it already looks like we know what to look forward to seeing on the box next year and we might not even have to wait until Christmas for the TV treat!

Only Fools and Horses
Will the Trotter's iconic Reliant Robin be back too?

You may have thought it ended for good almost a decade ago, but it looks as though Del Boy and Rodney could be on their way back to our screens once again. Following the untimely death of series creator John Sullivan in 2011, it looked as though we had seen the last of the Trotters after all, but according to the show's star David Jason, that might not be the case. Lavely jubbly!

Speaking to The Times, the actor revealed that Sullivan's two sons, Jim and Dan, have been hard at work with a new episode of the hit sitcom, with the pair developing a story that their father had been working on prior to his passing. He didn't give much away about what we might see in the episode, but that's only because he has read the script yet.

"I’ve had a quick look at the treatment and it’s very good," he said, "but I’m saving the proper read-through until there are no distractions...It’s not the sort of thing you can muck about with."

Although no details have emerged from the BBC as to when the show might air - providing it is the BBC snap up the rights to the script that is - reports have since stated that the show could air as early as next spring. Jason is expected to return along with his co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst if/when the show does return.

Meanwhile, David Jason has also reprised one of his other famous sitcom roles, returning as Granville in the seasonal Open All Hours one off. The special episode will see Jason taking over from Ronnie Barker's Arkwright and is due to air on BBC1 on Boxing Day.
