Ten years after it last aired, it looks like there could be a new episode of Only Fools and Horses in the pipeline.

The award-winning sitcom, starring David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as dodgy market traders Del Boy and Rodney Trotter, ran from 1981 until 2003, when it finished after 63 episodes.

All hope of it returning appeared to end when the show's creator John Sullivan died in 2011. However, it has now emerged that his sons Jim and Dan have being working on a new episode.

According to The Times, Jason has been given the script, but is yet to decide if he wants to step back into Derek "Del Boy" Trotter's shoes.

He told the paper: "I've had a quick look at the treatment and it's very good, but I'm saving the proper read-through until there are no distractions. It's not the sort of thing you can muck about with."
