Jan 03, 2014 | 7:23pm EST

Beloved British comedy Only Fools & Horses will return to the small screen in the U.K. in March (14) as part of the BBC's Sport Relief telethon. 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. A year later (04) it was named Britain's greatest ever sitcom. 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 spokesman 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".
