Beckham takes Peckham

He's knocking 'em bandy!

MOST POPULAR

Fromage frais! With the kibosh put on rumours of Victoria appearing on , we thought we'd have to put our hopes of a new Beckham cameo to one side. Not so. It's David to rescue, and quite spectacularly: the retired Mr Beckham has only gone and landed himself a part in Only Fools And Horses.

Of course, it's all in the name of charity - Sports Relief, to be precise.

Becks is joining the infamous Trotter brothers, aka David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, in the first new sketch of the cult BBC comedy to be filmed in 11 years.

The high rises and greasy spoons of Peckham might be a world away from the jet-set surroundings to which Becks has become accustomed, but we've no doubt he'll be channeling his East London roots in the role - he looks quite at home in this sneak peek, no?

The episode will be aired on Friday, 21 March as part of a weekend of Sport Relief events across the UK.
