Only Fools and Horses won’t return for full series!

According the writer Jim Sullivan, the comedy sketch Only Fools and Horses will not be returning for a full series.

The show returned for a one-off sketch for Sport Relief on BBC One for Sport Relief with an appearance from Football legend, David Beckham, who stared alongside Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst.


Jim Sullivan, the son of late creator John Sullivan, has said there are no plans for the show to return for further episodes.

He told Radio Times that “It’s a relief now that it’s done as we were all sworn to secrecy for what felt like a long time.”

After the request was made by Beckham to see the return of the show for Charity, Jim Sullivan wrote the Sport Relief special with his brother Dan.

He continued to say “It really is just a one-off sketch. We very much appreciate the passionate and loyal fanbase that the show has, and in a perfect world there would be more episodes, but there was only ever one writer of Only Fools and Horses, and without him, there can be no more”.

David Beckham said while filming the sketch it was “nerve wrecking” and Jason has admitted that he didn’t expect to return to the show.
