The BBC News today report that David Beckham is joining Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst for an Only Fools And Horses Sport Relief sketch reuniting Del Boy and Rodney for the first time in over 10 years.
As part of BBC One’s Sport Relief coverage on 21 March, the sketch will see Beckham head to Peckham to join the duo in a greasy spoon cafe.
The brief return of Only Fools and Horses has been eagerly awaited by fans of the show, which ran from 1981.
It was regularly voted Britain’s best sitcom and 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 watched by more than 24 million people.

Actor Roger Lloyd-Pack, who played Trigger in Only Fools And Horses, has died aged 69.
He was best known for his role as the dopey roadsweeper in the long-running BBC comedy series alongside David Jason.
His agent, Maureen Vincent, said he had pancreatic cancer and had “died at home surrounded by his family”.
Only Fools And Horses is due to return for a special one-off episode for Sport Relief in March.
It is believed the script has been written but it is not known if filming has begun.
The episode was due to feature Lloyd-Pack.
The actor was involved in one of the most memorable scenes from the hit comedy when he and Del Boy go to a wine bar.
