David Beckham reveals anxiety ahead of Only Fools and Horses debut

The retired football star, 38, was surprised to have been given so much dialogue in the BBC One Sport Relief special.

David Beckham has described how he struggled to sleep the night before making his Only Fools And Horses debut because he was so nervous.

600The star instigated the TV special, which will reunite market trader Del Boy (Sir David Jason) and Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst) for the first time in a decade.

Beckham said he went to bed so keen on perfecting his lines on the eve of his guest appearance, that he woke up the next morning with the script still on his chest.

The retired football star, 38, was surprised to have been given so much dialogue in the BBC One Sport Relief special.

He told Radio Times magazine: “The day of filming started off with a slightly sleepless night, going over my script.

“The thought of being on set with Nicholas and David was obviously very nerve-racking. I woke up that morning with my script on my chest.

“I’ve never done anything like this before, especially with two people I’m really in awe of and have been for many years.

“It wasn’t just about learning the script, it was about delivering it; saying the right things at the right time.”

Beckham, who has been pictured on set, in the market, wearing a baseball cap and glasses, said that he could “die a happy man” after filming the Peckham-set sketch.

He added: “I’m a huge fan of the show. I have been for many years, as far back as I can remember. Being from the East End of London, it’s what I was brought up on.”
