ONLY Fools and Horses star Sue Holderness fears TV magic will be lost if the sitcom is re-edited to avoid causing offence.
The actress, 73, who played Marlene Boyce alongside David Jason, 83, said it was not worth sacrificing comedy gold to appease a minority.
She said a Louis Armstrong joke by screen husband John Challis got a huge laugh in 1986 — and offended no one.
She insisted “There wasn’t a hint of racism.”
Sue, who spoke at she launch of an anti-fraud campaign, added: “If you edited out everything slightly controversial now you would lose a lot of brilliant episodes.
“Do we have to lose TV magic because of a few hyper-sensitive people?”
