BREAK out the Baileys and Cherryade because Only Fools And Horses is back for Christmas.

I can reveal Del Boy himself Sir David Jason will be front and centre of a new documentary about the classic sitcom, where he’ll reveal which festive episode he believes is the creme de la menthe.

The special will be his first major TV appearance since his hip replacement op earlier this year.

And he’ll be joined by a line-up of regulars from the Nags Head boozer.

A TV source said: “It wouldn’t be Christmas without the Trotters, so this is a great way for viewers to get their Only Fools fix.

“Producers were delighted when David was passed fit to appear following his surgery, so the special will be cushty for fans.”

In the documentary, screening on Channel 5, David will recall iconic moments from the beloved sitcom, which first aired in 1981, as well as secrets from festive sets.

His on-screen wife Tessa Peake-Jones, who played Raquel, will also appear, along with celebrity fans including Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis plus Strictly hopeful and newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

Only Fools And Horses ended in 2003 and is synonymous with the TV Christmas schedules, having notched up record-breaking audience figures.

Sir David remains invested in his most famous character, regularly attending Only Fools And Horses conventions, to the delight of fans.

However, his hip surgery forced organisers to postpone the latest get-together. Now recovered, Sir David is expected to make the rescheduled event early next year.

Lauding his new “bionic hip” last month, David said: “I am fine. I’m having a little trouble getting the muscles back because I was so infirm for two to three weeks.

“I wasn’t using the legs at all. That’s where I am at now, getting it back, doing some exercises. But the hip itself is wonderful.”

Sounds like some pukka gear.

NETFLIX reality show Squid Games: The Challenge has been given a second season.

A new batch of contestants will battle it out to win $4.56 million (£3.6million) in challenges based on the Squid Games original series.

The finale of season one is available to stream today on Netflix.
