Sport Relief 2014: Watch David Beckham in Peckham in Only Fools and Horses special
The footballer was a cracking sport in the special one-off comeback episode
David Beckham proved to be anything but a plonker when he made his acting debut during Sport Relief 2014.
The former Manchester United footballer starred alongside Only Fools and Horses duo Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst in the one-off special called "Beckham In Peckham".

During the episode, Beckham sportingly sends up his perceived lack of intelligence and happily plays the butt of several 'dipstick' jokes.
At one point, the duo ask Beckham why he’s wearing glasses, to which he replies with a Del Boy-esque line, incorrectly saying they help him go “incognitive” rather than “incognito”.
In another, Beckham jokes that he would go out into the high street wearing a sarong if Del Boy improbably asked him to.
The reactions so far seem to have been mostly from teenage girls and women, who praised Becks' undeniable 'Specs Appeal' during the comedy short.
"Dont normally like David Beckham but those glasses had me," one follower exclaimed.
"I was really hoping Beckham was going to model those pants. Gutted," another said.
Others appeared to praise his slightly shaky acting skills, demonstrated previously during his H&M adverts, in which he barely speaks, but does run about in his pants a lot. Always a crowd pleaser, that.
The entire piece ended with a picture tribute to the late Roger "Trigger" Lloyd Pack, who died aged 69 in January this year. It was thought that he was set to star in the piece before his untimely passing.
