Another said: "I don't know how you and Boycie are pals, I don't need to. This, this is what Twitter is all about. My faith in humanity is restored."

Other messages called on other US rap icons to tweet vintage British sitcom stars, with one joking: "Can't wait for 50 Cent to send seasons greetings to Patricia Routledge."

Ice T, 61, co-founded the heavy metal band Body Count, which he introduced on the 1991 rap album OG: Original Gangster.

The star, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, later found fame on TV in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and his own reality show Ice Loves Coco.

John meanwhile, played Boycie in Only Fools and Horses since its first series in 1981 before playing the same character in its spin-off Green Green Grass.

He has also made a string of guest appearances as Monty Staines in ITV comedy Benidorm.

Last month, John became one of few people to speak up in favour of Prince Andrew over his links with Jeffrey Epstein , saying he should be "given a chance to actually make things better".
