Only Fools & Horses is set to return to the small screen in the U.K. in March (14) as part of the BBC's Sport Relief telethon.

The show's creator John Sullivan died in 2011, but his sons Jim and Dan have been working on a new episode, and now BBC bosses have confirmed reports suggesting Jason and Lyndhurst will be part of this spring's (14) Sport Relief.

A representative for the network says "a short sketch" is being produced, adding, "Further details will be announced in the build up the appeal night on March 21".

The award-winning sitcom, starring Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as two hapless market traders, ran from 1981 until 2003, when it ended after 63 episodes.
