The last time Frank Spencer made a new appearance on our TV screens was Christmas Day, 1978.

But now, decades later, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em will return for a Sport Relief special – with Michael Crawford reprising his role as accident-prone Frank.

Crawford, 74, will reunite with his long-suffering on-screen wife, Betty, played by Michele Dotrice, in a one-off sketch for Sport Relief Night on March 18.

The special will see Frank land himself in his usual scrapes, culminating in a run-in with cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins at the cycling centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

Crawford said: ‘I am thrilled and delighted to have been asked to bring Frank back for Sport Relief.’

Miss Dotrice, 67, added that it would be an ‘absolute joy to be reunited again with Frank’ and that it was fitting 'for it is such a wonderful cause'.

Speaking about the BBC One sketch, Sir Bradley added: ‘I am a huge fan of Michael so it is an absolute honour to be asked to be involved alongside such an icon of British television ... and all for a great cause!’

Following the TV show’s conclusion in 1978, Crawford went on to star in the original production of The Phantom of the Opera and other successful Andrew Lloyd Webber productions such as The Wizard Of Oz.

It'll be fun at least...although won't hold out for a laugh-a-minute script.

The Only Fools and Horses special they did a few years back was weird - Nicholas Lyndhurst just looked really uncomfortable throughout for some reason.

Perhaps Nicholas felt that it should have been left alone or thinking why are rebooting this?
