Football icon turns actor for charity at the end of the month

David Beckham will star alongside Del Boy and Rodney in an Only Fools and Horses sketch for Sport Relief on March 21. 

Beckham has recently shared his pre show jitters saying "The thought of being on set with Nicholas and David was obviously very nerve-racking," continuing "I've never done anything like this before. It wasn't just about learning the script, it was about delivering it: saying the right things at the right time."

The football legend has been an Only Fools and Horses fan for years, saying "Being from the East End of London, it's what I was brought up on."

The son of the late Only Fools and Horses founder, Jim Sullivan has praised Beckham's acting skills, revealing "When he first read the script he was a bit surprised to have been given so much dialogue and was nervous, understandably, about having to act alongside David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, but he had no reason to be because his acting and delivery were very good."
