As Twitter conversations go, there’s probably none more unlikely that Ice-T and Only Fools and Horses’ John Challis, who played Boycey in the hit TV show. Yet that’s exactly what happened on Twitter yesterday (September 6).

It all began when Ice-T commented on a Twitter users post after he was complaining about feeling old. Ian Clarke tweeted: “I am 52 on Saturday…how do I stop feeling old,” to which Ice-T replied: “I’m 60…you’re a little kid.”

The exchange then prompted others to quickly get involved:

I am 52 on do I stop feeling old 😭😂

I’m 60.. You’re a little kid.

What does being 36 make me?

— Nothing (@Nothing17727832) September 6, 2018

A Newborn. Lol

— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) September 6, 2018

I don’t even wanna know what being 19 makes me 🤭

— Michael Silva (@Michael_Silva03) September 6, 2018

19 means you have every opportunity in the World ahead of you! Get busy!

Later on, Challis also chimed into the conversation, saying “I’ve just turned 76,so you are but a spring chicken” to the legendary rapper.

Ice T replied, prompting excitement from Twitter users as the most unlikeliest of conversations ensued.

I’ve just turned 76,so you are but a spring chicken.

Last year, it was announced by Jim Sullivan, son of the shows late creator John Sullivan, that the TV show could return.

Whilst John Sullivan died in 2011, aged 64, his son didn’t rule of the possibility of a comeback. Speaking to The Mirror, he said: “I’ve always said that Only Fools – the series as we know it – was laid to rest with my dad…However that is not to say that the show and its characters cannot, and will not, be explored in different mediums.”
