Only Fools and Horses fans ecstatic as Del Boy and Marlene actors reunite in ‘beautiful’ selfie

The two stars sent sitcom fans into a frenzy as they appeared side by aside for a brilliant photograph

Two Only Fools and Horses legends have reunited leaving fans of the sitcom absolutely delighted.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday (March 4), Sue Holderness shared a photo of herself beside Sir David Jason, who is famed for playing Del Boy Trotter in the BBC sitcom.

Sue, who played Only Fools’ Marlene Boyce, posed for a snap with her former co-star at a fan convention celebrating the classic show in Milton Keynes. In the photo, the two iconic TV stars stand side-by-side as they share a moment nearly 20 years since the show ended.

Sue sweetly captioned the post: “SO lovely to be with Sir DJ again.”

Only Fools and Horses fans were delighted by their reunion and took to the post’s comments section to share their excitement, with one person writing: “Beautiful photo.”

A second stated: “Beautiful legends in a frame”, while a third chimed in with: “Wonderful photograph of two British sitcom legends.”

The Del Boy and Marlene reunion comes only days after Sue appeared on Loose Women during Thursday’s (March 2) episode and paid tribute to her former co-star John Challis, who played car dealer Boycie on Only Fools and Horses.

During the ITV daytime chat show, she admitted how much she missed her “best friend” Challis following his death in September 2021.

Panelist Nadia Sawalha asked Sue: “We have got to talk about John Challis. I was lucky enough to work with him a few years ago on Benidorm. He was so lovely.”

Sue admitted: “Do you know the nice thing is when they talk to me about John Challis, who played Boycie my husband for many years and was indeed my best friend.

“When people talk about him I haven’t heard anybody say anything other than that he was a jolly good egg.”

Carol McGiffin then asked Sue: “Do you miss Marlene?”, the actress immediately replied: “Oh yes I would have gone on to play Marlene until I dropped! But of course, Sally Lyndsey has gone on to give me this kind of monster in the Mandame Blanc.”

Only Fools and Horses launched in September 1981. Sue Holderness joined in 1985 as Marlene Boyce and remained in the show until its final episode in 2003.
