Only Fools and Horses fans can rejoice as one TV channel is playing non-stop reruns of the BBC sitcom over Christmas.
From 2.15pm on Christmas Day, the Gold kicks off its Only Fools marathon with Heroes and Villains. The episode formed the first of a three-part Christmas special in 1996 and is famed for the scene when Del Boy and Rodney Trotter transform into Batman and Robin to attend a wake!
Modern Men is the second episode to air followed by Time on Our Hands which sees the Trotters become millionaires. There’s a break from Only Fools as Gavin and Stacey airs on Sunday evening followed by Blackadder, The Royle Family.
On Boxing Day, Only Fools returns for a full day of classic episodes starting with Modern Men at 8.45am, then Time on Our Hands, Big Brother, Go West Young Man, Cash, and Curry, The Second Time Around, Heroes and Villains, The Russians Are Coming, and more until the final episode Christmas Crackers airs at 8.15pm.
Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, and Uncle Albert return on Tuesday, December 27, for another day of hilarious instalments including A Touch of Glass where the chandelier famously drops in one of the show’s funniest scenes, along with Diamonds Are For Heather, The Long Legs of the Law, A Losing Streak, No Greater Love and more.
In all, Only Fools and Horses will be on TV for two days, six hours, and five minutes – or 54 hours of Only Fools and Horses.
Pass me the Tia Maria and Lucozade!
