Only Fools and Horses (UK)

For 15 years, Brothers Derek 'Del boy' and Rodney Trotter of 'Trotters Independant Traders PLC' have entertained us both with Del's extreme optimism and scams and, quite simply, Rodney's facial expressions upon hearing those scams. Throughout the years, Grandad died and the equally funny Uncle Albert came to live with them, the brothers married and Del Boy had a son, Damien.

Dodgy dealers Del Boy and Rodney Trotter are to return to British TV screens for the first time in more than 10 years, the BBC has confirmed. The much-loved south Londoners, played by David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, will feature in a short Only Fools and Horses sketch for this year's Sport Relief in March. The show, which ran from 1981-2003, was regularly voted Britain's best sitcom. The show was created by writer John Sullivan, who died aged 64 in 2011.

    John Sullivan (VIII) and Gareth Gwenlan approached David Jason in 2011 with Del Boy coming back at 65 and what had become of everyone. Jason was up for it, because anything was possible in Sullivan's hands. But two weeks later, Gwenlan phoned Jason saying Sullivan was in intensive care with viral pneumonia. He seemed on the mend, and got to leave hospital and go home at one point, but he had a relapse and went back to hospital and died not long after.
