No the ex-footballer hasn’t decided to break into acting, it’s actually all part of Sport Relief and Becks will be joining Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst for a special episode of the show.

It will take place on March 21st and is the first time in more than 10 years that Del Boy and Rodney will be back on TV.

Beckham will appear in a greasy spoon café in Peckham during the special show following on from a number of similar appearances by the star in previous years.

Coverage will come live from the Olympic Park with presenters including Gary Lineker, Gaby Logan, Claudia Winkleman, Jack Whitehall and Clare Balding. There will also be a Strictly Come Dancing special, with four Paralympians and their professional dance partners.
