Tv - David Sir David Jason Hints At New Only Fools & Horses Series

Beloved British Tv show Only Fools & Horses could make a permanent return to the small screen if an upcoming one-off revival proves popular with the public, according to lead actor Sir David Jason.

The sitcom went off-air for good in 2003, but will make a temporary return to Tv in March (14) when Jason and his co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst re-team for a sketch as part of the Bbc's Sport Relief telethon.

The sketch was written by creator John Sullivan before he died in 2011 and has been reworked by his two sons, Jim and Dan, and Jason admits they could bring the series back if there is enough demand from fans.

He says, "It is the material we lack. We need John Sullivan, but you know, if we get enough tweets, we might bring it back."

The show, which starred Jason and Lyndhurst as a pair of luckless market traders, ran from 1981 until 2003.
