Wendi McLendon-Covey has been cast in ABC's Only Fools and Horses remake.

The Bridesmaids star will play Ruby, the ex-wife of John Leguizamo's Del. The equivalent role of Raquel in the UK original was played by Tessa Peake-Jones.

After she was released from HBO pilot Viagra Diaries, McLendon-Covey attracted five offers, and ultimately decided to join the cast of Only Fools and Horses, reports Deadline.

The comedy pilot is about two streetwise brothers Del (Leguizamo) and Rodney (Dustin Ybarra), along with their grandfather (Christopher Lloyd), as they devise schemes to make money in the hope of becoming millionaires.

McLendon-Covey starred in last year's summer hit Bridesmaids as the cousin of Maya Rudolph's Lillian.

Her television credits include Reno 911!, Cougar Town and I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
